The Journey


Walking, walking, walking… Often I have wondered what I am walking away from and what I am walking towards.  I´ve been told that the insights the camino offers to those called to walk are continued for a lifetime.  I am so very clear of what I am walking away from but how do I process the past as to limit the impact on the future? walk on… How do I glean from the past my future?  walk on… How can the sadness that continues to live inside of me no longer steal away my today and tomorrows?  walk on.. Walking, walking, walking what am I walking away from and what am I walking toward?

Note:  Arrive in Santiago tomorrow Thursday September 24th.  The second leg of my camino will be over.  200km walked.  I will finish the final leg next week to bring my past, present and future together.  Walked them backwards though.  The past is my walk to the sea (the ancient Celtic leg), the present is the current walk (Sarria to Santiago) and the future was my walk through the mountains (the Pyrenees). Soon we can all become one my anti-camino and me..
