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 very long day of transport connections and had a snafu with the rental car which actually was a blessing. (We decided to pick it up on Saturday instead of today, since we really don't need a car in Edinburgh.)We are at a Bed and Breakfast called Auld Reekie after the old nickname for industrialized Edinburgh. It is on the third floor of a Queen Anne style townhouse in the "new town" (early 1700's). I am running low on megabytes, so I think I will sign off of my blog, and close the saga of the pilgrimage of the Way of St Cuthbert. Lindisfarne was everything we had hoped for-peaceful, spiritual, beautiful and holy. A place to renew the spirit. Now we have plunged back into the hurly burly of city life! Tomorrow we climb Arthur's Seat and explore the castle. Saturday we will pick up a car and go to St Andrew's. Then on to the west coast. I will send a note once in a while when I can get some wireless. Cheerio!
