Not so fast!

20 Jul

I seemed to be getting ahead of myself since I’m sitting on the tarmac at Charlotte, waiting out a thunderstorm.

But I’ve spent the time reading up on the camino and found this quote from John Brierley, author of a Camino de Santiago guidebook.

We have been asleep for a long time. Despite the chaotic world around us, or perhaps because of it, something is stirring us to awaken from our collective amnesia. A sign of this awakening is the number of people drawn to walk the caminos.

He continues:

Pilgrimage offers us an opportunity to slow down and to allow some spaciousness into our lives.

Amen to that!
