The late novelist john gardner ( tho its been attributed to others ) that all stories begin with two plots (1) a person goes on a journey and (2) a stranger comes into town!! I just thought that related itself very well to going on camino🤔

But i wonder
What would Fibonacci have to say about all pilgrims spriral toward Santiago?
Or is it some gravity drawing us from afar that tugs so bitter sweetly
Or like wine sweetly bitter at the ends
Moths must have their own Fibonacci
Or is instinct to circle the light until conditions
Inside and out are satisfied
And then its ok to fall inward

Everything moves
What moves the man,falling toward the center..or has he been flung from somewhere else and captured by the winds of gravity... are borne toward some Cathedrals event horizon
On dreams with lucid wings and mysterious things
Whispered in a tongue's understood in certain things
And hidden in-betweens
We are a sun in wintering sky's

In school we were taught the theory that there were three traditional stories:
Man vs. Man
Man vs. Nature
Man vs. Self
And some argued two new stories in modern times:
Man vs. Society
Man vs. Technology
I think many of these could come into play during your Camino!

Perhaps chaos theory at work...?
Isnt chaos simply the inability to make sense of the events of the moment.
Give it a second and it all makes sense
If it still doesnt make sense, drink a glass of wine
In the case it still doesnt ?
Drink a bottle of wine
The impish possibilities become reasonable no matter what the improbabilities. The inability to grasp the order of things only implies the observer has not drank enough to be senseless to what they want to see and to what is..
Isnt chaos what makes things interesting?

That is one description of how chaos theory works. The other is that seemingly unrelated and unassociated things frequently coalesce into something meaningful over time, without apparent predictability.

Why are no two snowflakes alike, yet, they can be combined to form a snowball?

Yes, in the absence of rules, processes, structures, or formulae, chaos theory is what, nonetheless, brings order to seeming disorder.

Marvelous ain't it... It is the simple explanation for why most things in life seem to just work out in the end if we all just step back and let it happen. Let God be God and all that...

I posted a link to a Wikipedia article by accident and have deleted it again. Please ignore it if the post was sent to you by email. I am now off to read about the Law of Attraction instead and refresh what someone once told me about it. For as long as I can stand it ... 🥳.

We make sense of the maelstrom i think, in a mans ...wish? To put order to the world his senses,his intellect perceives
A dark room is full of possibilities
A lit room is not
change comes about i think when we stoo relying on wrote and flow with what is
We get our wings as we learn to trust our adaptive abilities

One step past the portal is more important than the next
The last step can be as important as the first
Did we learn?
What..did a person learn?

Putting order of chaos
Into chaos
Of chaos
Is the end of fear and the beginning of order

There is and will always be variables
A person can even say there are no certainties
Perception is a key i humbly think
I think mans ascention was boosted above other critters by the ability to ..see.

I can only see one step ahead
Plan sucsessfully two steps ahead before i am overwhelmed by possibilities...going "tharn" as some author or other once wrote
But away from catastrophication and on the feet, the rational mind befins seeing order in the potentialities

Pilgrims worry the small stuff before the step into the unknown
Minutia..what if

The second step ..what is
We coalesce..miniature communities
We dissolve and become particles again
But all the while a whole made of singles
A wave to terrestrial bound tourists made of particles

Each important
Each another potential...

All the while traveling through time and space and chaos in each others comfort
And after a while finding that chaos is not scary nor terra incognita
Here..there be monsters!
Or is it just we dont see the reality that reality can,may be shaped by its perception by the observer
The participant
The one who has experienced

All that to say..Go Forth Brave Pilgrim! Its a brave and wonderful thing to step out of your everyday,orderly....same experience and brave the maelstrom
Its like swimming
Its like flying
Its making the most of life
Its dying
And rebirth
Its the rough beast limping toward Jerusalem to be reborn
Its the first wail of the first of a billion counted breaths
Its the surfacing from the long dark dive of the soul
Chaos
Is possibility written infinity

Off you go Pilgrim!
Embrace the unknown!
