    Hola Johnnie (and Anne) what a great idea. Many of us write a journal at the end of each day - detailed notes on the events of that day or just a few thoughts to clear ones head before dropping of to sleep or down to the bar - but to reduce that to the 500-600 words will take a power of editing, by us pilgrims. But I am game if you can handle my ramblings. Cheerso_O

    thank you Anne and Johnnie - i will search for my actually letters written and compose something from those -
    looking forward to reading others musings as well. thus listening to them - and
    even though:
    "I found I had less and less to say, until finally, I became silent, and began to listen. I discovered in the silence the voice of God. ~ Soren Kierkegaard. Read more: The Essential Kierkegaard"

    best wishes - C
