Looking back — Camino

by | Mar 14, 2018 | in the Spirit | 0 comments

Four and a half years ago — in September 2013, I joined a friend to walk the Via Frances (Camino de Santiago de Compostela) in Spain — we did start in St. Jean Pied de Port, France, but by day 2 we had made our way to Roncesvalles, Spain by crossing Napoleon’s Pass through the Pyrenees. As I would check in each afternoon, my husband would put a pin on a google map to mark my progress. I’ve recently enjoyed clicking on the pins and trying to remember the Auberge where we stayed and the events of each day. Some are vivid, some, not so much. Anyway — the map is here so you can see our stops as we travelled west across northern Spain.

I hope to be able to walk again — maybe from SJPP or maybe from Portugal. There are many ways to make the journey. It’s the journey that makes the difference.

  • Lessons from odd places
    I know I have a problem — I like to play versions of Angry Birds, Candy Crush and Words with Friends. I can get absorbed. I can use it to back off from the world (I’m a bit of an introvert and sometimes I do need to retreat). That said, there are lessons to be […]
  • Connections
    Today’s “aha!”comes from a January reflection from CAC …One of the most familiar of Jesus’ teachings is “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31, Matthew 22:39). But we almost always hear that wrong: “Love your neighbor as much as yourself.” (And of course, the next logical question then becomes, “But I have to love me first, don’t […]
