First update from the Camino
Lao Tzu once said that “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” In my case, it began with heavy rain, dense fog, cold and wind. The strenuous, mostly uphill terrain further magnified the challenge. Many pilgrims turned around while others took a taxi to the next town. But I soldiered on, always keeping your words of encouragement and support close to my heart. And although my feet are tired, my mind and soul are rested.
The spirit of the Camino is deeply peaceful, reflective and compassionate. I felt that throughout the day- even in the midst of nature’s unforgiving elements. Needless to say, it´s been a beautiful experience thus far. I’ve had time to think, reflect, appreciate and interact with pilgrims from around the world- and it´s only day one! I look forward to the rest of the journey and hope that you’ll join me along the way!
Peace, hugs and buen camino,
