We have a walk later today and we are on the last few kilometers of your trek across Spain. It’s been a long walk but we are still smiling. It’s soggy winter but we are still joking. It is unsettled times in the news but we have a certain stability. We have no money but the Camino provides. We buoy each other up when we need it. We walk maybe when we don’t feel like it and it always ends up good. We invite people to come and very few do but that’s OK, I know they are thinking about us. We tell stories that need telling. We ask questions that need asking.
So, here we are with nothing else to do but be together. It’s not a holiday we don’t have to get prepared or have to cook a big meal. It’s not snowing or raining heavily, nothing to worry about from the weather. The Super Bowl nor the Stanley Cup nor the World Series are happening. If there is a meteor shower coming it will probably be cloudy and go unseen. Nothing much is going on right now anywhere near here in time or space to distract us.
Alone we might feel lonely. Together we will fill our time together no problem and pledge to meet again. We will walk and not notice the discomforts. Miles and kilometers will fly by like a brisk wind. We won’t have time for the small stuff and life will seem good.
Come walk, love, Felipe.
