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.
Two photos are attached today, one of the view from the top of the last hill we will climb until after Leon when we enter Galicia. The other is a view of the outside of the loveliest albergue yet. I want our backyard to look like this! Right now we are sitting there discussing our future plans. Truus and Nora had a hard time today on the Meseta and are talking about taking the bus to Leon. As far as I am concerned, that is not an option for me. I also have a deadline to be getting home, with my granddaughters coming to visit at the end of the month, so I need to start lengthening my walking day, if possible. It will mean getting up earlier and getting more kilometers under my belt before the heat of the day. So I am afraid I will have to part from my friends and turn over a new leaf in the book of my Camino adventures. Every day we face the unknown on the Camino, not knowing what the path will be like, what new people we will meet, where or how pleasing the food or the bed will be. We just go in faith that it will all work out. I ask again for your prayers on the Meseta, that I will be strong and able to cross it without tiring too much, and be able to find accommodations after a long day. Gracias!
