Last evening a comment can through channels to me here at headquarters, it was Becky. I was so happy to know that I hadn’t dreamed the whole thing up. But it was her and her story matched mine so I am happy.
Here are her words:
“Phil! I am here and sorry for the delayed response! Meeting you Wednesday was such a treasured moment! I sent our selfie to my family text thread knowing they would freak out. And they sure did. I recounted our encounter and my shock when you answered my surprised holler ‘Phil’s Camino?!’ With ‘yes, I’m Phil’. I told them I had a speechless moment with so many questions and topics to cover, as anyone who has walked the Camino can relate to. Alas, our respective 8am appointments saved me from embarrassing myself too much, but am thankful you obliged me with a selfie!
My folks have walked the camino a number of times, I was privileged to join them for 2 weeks in October 2016. It is an experience like no other, to say the least.
My folks were staying with me after a recent surgery and they brought your video to watch during their visit. What an honor and encouragement to know your story! Thank you for sharing and continuing your Camino with such grace.
We had contemplated going to Vashon for a ‘get out of the city’ drive. It is still on our list!
That Wednesday morning, I’m thankful I followed by dad’s rule/encouragement to talk to strangers.“
And I’m happy to announce the the whole coincidence/synchronicity phenomenon is alive and well in this world! Here I was pushing open my most feared door and who should arrive to go through with me. I don’t know, one can’t make this stuff up apparently. Thank you Becky for tweaking me there at that exact instant.
The phrase, “we can’t help ourselves”, thank you Annie, goes a long way to explain this. And it all seems to have a mind of it’s own, this synchronicity, just ambulating down the boulevard like it’s reality is all the norm. Hmm. It sort of lives in us now but it has it’s own agenda.
Yea, speaking of Annie I have a zoom this evening with a group that has recently watched Phil’s Camino. It is a QandA. They are always fun. Annie rigs up these deals and I tag along.
Alperfect loves all the time, Felipé.
