‚Love, Light & Nature‘ The sign-off I adopted after my second Camino (The Francés)

Love I felt for others, the world around me; the Love people gave me along the Way. Love I witnessed.
Light in peoples eyes and hearts and smile; kind and wise words; the memorable sunrise and sunsets.
Nature in abundance and of immense diversity; insects I‘ve only encountered on Camino; snakes on my path, birds, trees... Strangers helping strangers, the kindness and love in human nature.

I could have adopted ‚Rain, Pain & Blisters‘ as my sign- off, or ‚Vomit, Diarrhea & Bellyache‘, but I wouldn‘t wish those experiences on anyone and they would not be well received, I'm sure.

What would your new sign-off be, considering your Camino experiences?

While not an original thought, I can't help but think of the late Steve Jobs and his advice to the graduating class at Stanford when he said "Stay hungry, stay foolish".

I hope I will always hunger to learn more, share more and experience more and I hope that I will always be foolish enough to not take the advice of those who tell me I cannot accomplish, do or be more than I was yesterday...

During the Roman empire the aristocracy and soldiers greeting was "Health and Joy" or "Health and Great Joy", which I rather like .. and when asked how I am .. hotel reception etc, I always answer "life is good" (and mean it, deeply).

but - ah .. sign off's? Not quite certain but I think my generic one tends to be "All is Well" but if it is a supportive and/or religious response message I end with "in your heart and home, Peace".

It reminds me of a line from the the Christian religious song... "It is well, it is well with my soul".

I'm not sure what a sign-off is but before, during and after I have a HELL of a time!
Hope, go forward with it!
Expectation, leave it behind!
Live, your fullest potential!
Love, give out!

I LOVE “ In your heart and home, Peace.” Can I borrow that to sign my Christmas cards next year? “ All is well” is also perfect, unless all isn’t well. Of course all is always well in a mystical sense.

Absolutely! The only thing I ever tried to copyright was the word 'copyright' and that didn't work :D:D:D

My sign-in + sign-off every single day since walking through the Baltic States (2017) has been,

I'm alive!

(When anyone asks how I am that's what I say: I am alive! Sometimes I add a resounding, Hallelujah, but this gets a few shocked looks, so mostly i just say, with all the astonishment and gratitude I feel, I Am Alive! That seems to cover it. Without Life there is nothing else)

Not too far off of yours...mine is:

"Travel light
live light
spread the light
BE the light"
...attributed to some wise person

Ultreia!

This sign-off is from our own dear Saint Mike II, who’s undergoing some health challenges at the moment. He says:

“The glass is half-full - feel free to top it up”.

‘Love, Love, LOVE this ...

Cheers from Oz -
Jenny

"What day is it?" asked Pooh. "It's today," squeaked Piglet. "My favourite day," said Pooh.

I used: "Today; my favourite day" a few years ago as the title to my "live" from the Camino thread. Getting into a Pollyanna mindset comes without effort when I am walking a Camino.
