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.
This monument was placed at the Ponferrada albergue in memory of a Finnish bicyclist who was killed here in 2001. I have seen many such memorials along the way. We just passed a small town where once upon a time you could receive a "mercy compostela" if you were too weak or sick to make it over the Ocebreiro mountain peak. Although not the highest point, it is a very steep slope to climb. We hope to tackle it the day after tomorrow. From there it will be about 100 miles to Santiago. Every day we become more impatient to reach our goal. It is now within our grasp! Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T
