Way back when in 2014 Kelly and I trained to walk the Camino. This was once it looked to us like the trip would be possible. Not all the pieces were in place but we proceeded like it was all going to come together. And in the end we did go and had a grand marvelous life changing experience. And Kelly took his job seriously about being my walking companion and well handler during all that.
One of the things we would do each day was have a review of things that I needed to remember, practical things to make the day go right. This was good because sometimes we would get separated and I’d be on my own which sometimes was a little dicey. But what is important here now is the concept of review. Kelly helped me because he would prioritize and emphasize.
So, here we are today and I am going to review for us what is the basic idea that is the foundation of this blog. Because one problem with blogs is that they move along and a newcomer has to put in some effort to get in the flow and understand the ideas, the texture, the movement of the story. It is great for the author to charge along but it is easy to get ahead of the readers because it is a bore to explain things all the time. A longtime follower would know and be acquainted with the bloggers style and train of thought and would consider all the explainations a bore. So there is a balance to strike between catering to the newcomers and the veterans.
So, let me say because I feel the need to explain that this blog rests on the saying that, “When you get to Santiago your Camino actually begins.” just to make things clear. Three years now since Kelly and I got back home the blog has basically been exploring this idea. What does this mean? What does it mean to me, to us. So, this is the review.
I have an archery lesson to give in twenty minutes. I can see this coming up on my Camino. Always remember that you are a completely unique child of God and today was made for you. Miss you, love you, Felipe.
