The Wayless Way, where the Sons of God lose themselves and, at the same time, find themselves.Meister Eckhart Stand at the crossroads and look; Ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.Jeremiah 6:16 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.Psalm 84:5
A retired Army wife, with three kids out creating their own lives, and SEVEN granddaughters, I love the good life, which to me is fresh food, fine bourbon, dear friends, stimulating conversation about all things spiritual and the life beyond the physical world. Put me in Barnes and Noble with a good cup of coffee and you may never see me again! Or set me on a walking trail and I am content.
We left Logrono this morning and it seemed to take for ever to get out of the city, through the suburbs and industrial parks. We had to walk a long way alongside a major highway. The city was so jarring after days of walking in the peaceful countryside. The photo shows a fence that separates the camino from the freeway where peregrinos have fashioned thousands of crosses from whatever is at hand and put them on the fence. So, of course I had to do the same. We are now in the little town of Ventosa in a beautifully restored albergue. Tomorrow I will take pictures of it. My friend, Truus, has had a bad fall today, and we are thinking of taking an easy day tomorrow and just going 10 km to Najera and getting a real private room for a day and relaxing. Camino veterans always recommend this and I think I need a day's break. We have another couple of German boys in our room tonight. I swear I should have studied German instead of Spanish!
