    a story to share

    gracias rioja for sharing your story... i am sure your dad is proud of you. a pilgrim pointed out the other side of "'clinging" to a loved one... and that is when we are able to let them go, we also allow (perhaps) their spirit to more fully experience heaven. no lingering "earth ties" if you...

I also still miss my dad but like the Kiwi priest you met while in France, we are always sent what just we need when we need it. I love the image of lifting your hands and lifting your...

    The Camino seems busy ...

    seems to me a busy camino is a wonderful opportunity to practice 'walking your walk'/'being who you want to be'/'doing your thing' amids others and different engergies. which is where we all go when we leave the camino, return home, to work etc. in other words, it is easier to be loving...

    fanny pack/waist bag alternative

    thanks xm! i "randomly" came across a little purse of mine that i actually fits my holga camera and myCSJ guidebook if need be. not a ton of room for snacks, but it's not too heavy and might just work! i never would have considered it if i didn't hear your responses - so thanks everyone!

    fanny pack/waist bag alternative

    I happen to not be a "fan" of fanny packs (those guys you wear around your waist with a pocket big enough for a camera, snacks etc). BUT i'm thinking that taking off my pack every time i want to take a picture or eat something is going to be a pain IN the fanny and i might wish i had a...
