Before I get going let me just report on My Rebecca. She is scheduled to go in to see the local doctor to check on the healing of the bleeding site. That time isn’t set yet but I will drive here up then. But things have been blessedly uneventful over the weekend. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers!
Last Tuesday on the third lap of that afternoon walk it was a beautiful day and I made a video of the trail. It is funky and a little jiggly but people have loved it, lots of comments. That is a pretty good Spring time look at things there. Try to see that.
I was going to write about “Running away with the Camino” today and then this amazing quote came up on FB and I stole it:
“A mind stretched by a new experience can never go back to old dimensions.” Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Yea, that almost sez it all. My present understanding of things puts the Camino in the category of a mind space. Running away with the Camino is exactly equivalent with our understanding of the phrase “running way with the circus”. So, we ran away with the Camino searching for answers to questions and we found that and more. And that process has put us in a new place. New for us and new and different for normality.
When I use the phrase “beyond normal” this is the meaning. It’s not old normal or new normal, it is what it sez, BEYOND! We find ourselves in a kind of Alice in Wonderland situation that is not easy to adjust to at first. Remember the first few months of reentry from the Camino walk?
So, I got a feeling this pandemic experience is going to do a similar job on us only at societal scale. That is powerful. So, recognize the process and make the adjustments. Help others. Help your family and your neighborhood.
thanks for being here loves, Felipé.
