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 had a beautiful day for walking. The sky was overcast and the air was fresh--perfect walking weather. Some say the Meseta is the most beautiful part of the camino. Others say it is boring. I will hold off judgment for now, but this day we had a level walking path, sky as big as Montana's and birdsong everywhere. The overcast sky and the treeless rolling hills reminded me of the Scottish moors and the green waves of grain reminded me of Meade County. Then we came into a pretty little town with a castle ruin on a hill. The photo is of a magical spring we passed on the way at San Bol. The saying is that if you put your feet in the spring, all your foot problems will be healed. As it was a bit nippy and I didn't have any foot problems at the moment (milagro) I passed up the offer. We also passed through an old pilgrim hospital at San Anton. They say that the nuns there were able to cure the gangrenous malady called St. Antony's Fire by using the power of love. I believe in that.
