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.

  • Two edged sword
    A time be born, a time to die… When my brother in law died nearly 3 years ago, I sang those words at his memorial service. “To everything,[turn, turn, turn] there is a season [turn, turn, turn] and a time to every purpose under heaven.” Today as we were out running errands, the Byrds sang […]
  • Expanding the Social Circle
    We got brave: my daughter and her family needed to vacate because their house is on market and there were several showings. They brought the kids’ bikes and skates and legos, and the son-in-law’s golf clubs (his parents live very close by). We spent hours on the back porch just being and talking. Kev played […]
