This is a wonderful book by Joyce Rupp that Sister Joyce pointed out to me maybe a year ago. It was on my radar but I had to get to Dubuque to finally get a copy. Well, it was a free copy which is even better. It was a gift from Tim and Mary, wonderful folks that took me on a tour of the environs.
It is a book about walking the Camino de Santiago and some insights that Joyce gained. It is marvelously detailed. Right now in the chapter I am reading she is talking about how the beauty of Spain and the beauty of the people around her brought her through the hard places.
Well, I am off to the hospital. Have to take Pancho, my sidekick portable chemo pump back. Yup, and a chance to smooze with folks there.
So, consider beauty as a antidote to the hurt of your struggle. It’s out there around us all the time whether it is in a book, CD, gallery or maybe growing up out of a crack in the sidewalk. You’re the best, love, Felipe.
