Hi. I just want to acknowledge this wonderful young lady who has a great view of things Camino and I want to work her ideas into this blog. One of my problems at the moment is that I can’t seem to cut and paste things yet on this new iPad.
Two days ago I left you with a quote of her’s that needs repeating, “It is time when all the presents that the Camino gave us will become useful.” OK, what are those presents specifically? I’m working on it, Lucia.
Also she sent pix of her and her walking companions. When I met Lucia she was with two other Italian women. One was from the north, and one was from around the central area, maybe Rome and she from Sicily in the south. Total representation! Once again having technical problems and would love to get the pix over here but can’t figure that out. It’s all a work in progress, right?
In one of her emails she said that she was resting and taking time so that her thoughts could have a better shape. I like the way that she had thoughts that had a life of their own maybe and given time they would show themselves in a tidy manner, lovely. I hope that I am not making her uncomfortable but this is the joy for us of meeting people from other places with a little different way to look at things and it gives us a little better view, don’t you think? Nice.
Here is another quote that really encouraged me to keep going with this effort. “Thank you for your blog, it is helping me in keeping my mind on the Way and at the same time making my return to normal life easier.”
OK, so I have some things to work on and explore in the coming days. But for now have to water the corn, take the paper recycling to the transfer station and jet into Seattle to the hospital. Such is life here. Love you all and keep going, Phil.
