Maybe this post should be re-routed to somewhere more appropriate, but I couldn't figure out where. We walked the CF with dear friends in 2005. We walked the VDLP in 2007 alone. There were very obvious comparisons. I ran across a quote in some of my 2005 readings which I thought might resonate with other forum members. It is very important to me.

"A pilgrim is in an in-between space for a little while, a time both of great transition and great potential. In this place, you can learn and experience things that it would be impossible to learn while not on pilgrimage. A pilgrim experiences communitas, the elimination of differences between people of different ages, classes and nationalities. Barriers between people are thrown aside as a great feeling of unity and connectedness brings people together in a way that seems impossible within the regular structures of society."

I don't remember where it came from, so if someone has the source, I would be more than happy to include it with the quote.

Peace.
