The big map o the Caminos de Santiago

An indefinable magic

Camino(s) past & future
Camino Frances, The Jakobsweg
Ime sure that flowers have been named a thousand times
Tides of man flowing over lands
Sometimes forgotten for aeon
And along comes a hairy man and a hairy woman awalking one day
Strange new lands unseen by human eye
Look...this one looks like a ribbon
Its a ribbon flower
And so it is known as such forever
Or until hairy man progresess enough so that his penchant for putting things in boxes takes over
Ribbon flower becomes orchid..or whatever.

Your Camino into Terra Incognita has had you see unknown vistas of the heart,mind and,soul...
Pilgrims untold have been there
And faced the abyss of the unknown and un imagined

Then they got home..
And sat them down befuddled,bemused and beginning which box to put the totality of the experience into.

Maybe someday
When enough time has passed
And enough men have thought

They will name what happened on the Way.

And maybe then
The Purpose of the Way will be understood by the hearts
And souls of men.

And then maybe the Way will reveal itself
A new crop of wanderers along a certain forgotten trail will begin the mystery again.

Pilgrim....its ok to not know whats going on inside
Just enjoy the totality of what has opened up before you.

The answer of having to have yelled into the abyss
Is your voice answering back.
Be well Pilgrim.
