WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?

13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that IContinue reading “WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?”

UKRAINE 🇺🇦

I am a news and politics junkie. I love nothing better than an energetic discussion about what’s going on in the world. Having said that I don’t share my political views (at least I hope I don’t) in this blog. Having said that I believe I must comment on what is happening in Ukraine. IContinue reading “UKRAINE 🇺🇦”

BURGOS

Burgos, 6 September 2021 How does one describe a good day? I think it’s easy to describe it from the inside out. I successfully taped my foot and it feels better. I had a lovely breakfast of cafe con leche and a pastry made with a flakey crust and dark chocolate on the bottom. IContinue reading “BURGOS”

WHAT’S THE DATE AGAIN?

August 31, 2021 Navarette I’m back on track with this camino after being ill for two days and taking two days to visit Bilbao. Today was a short day, only 8.5 miles and mostly flat with a few climbs. I feel good. I went to the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Navarette.Continue reading “WHAT’S THE DATE AGAIN?”

THE CAST OF CHARACTERS

The camino does not seem crowded like I expected it would be. Normally about 400 pilgrims start out from St. Jean Pied de Port each day. Today I heard that it is 30-40. About half of those walking are Spanish followed by French/Americans, and then the rest of Europe. I often walk alone which IContinue reading “THE CAST OF CHARACTERS”

WHAT WAS I THINKING?

So I was going to wax on about whether I’m starting my camino or just continuing my camino from two years ago or whether my Camino started at birth. Then I thought…who gives a tahoodle about that? I had a difficult time getting out of the US and my time in England with my friendContinue reading “WHAT WAS I THINKING?”

GRATITUDE

I have begun my second camino and I am grateful. I was supposed to leave on my trip on Sunday and was unable to fly because my covid test results came after the 48 hour deadline. I ended up getting 2 covid tests and both are negative. I’m so grateful. My flight to Washington DCContinue reading “GRATITUDE”

I HAVE RESERVATIONS

I have reservations. No, wait…I have no reservations. But I have reservations. OK, I have hotel & albergue reservations AND no reservations about the camino this year 😉 Last year at this time despite having had to cancel a trip to see Lady Gaga perform and a trip to Paris and England to visit myContinue reading “I HAVE RESERVATIONS”

GRIEF

There’s a story that I’ve told to friends about prayer and God and my youngest daughter. It goes something like this… After giving birth to my two older daughters I had a strong sense that our family was not quite complete. I wanted just one more child. And I had a bit of a deadline.Continue reading “GRIEF”

I’M GOING TO WALK THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO

February 2019 I’m going to walk the Camino de Santiago and today I’m starting my blog about it. Actually I started this blog in my head about six month ago, but today I am finally putting words to paper (screen?). How did I decide to do this? Most people answer this question by saying theyContinue reading “I’M GOING TO WALK THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO”
