Camino Frances, The Jakobsweg
Its been a tough last few weeks
Amd thoughts of The Camino hqve been in my head.

So much so..that i revealed my intentions on another forum to a member in Jerusalem.

He said.."You mean the Jakobsweg?"
I had to smile.

The thoughts, delightfully intrusive..and longinly thought
I told a close friend about..The Way..
He smiled and gave it a glowing report

The Way.
Its dark and quiet here..a storm off to the east..

Its funny how between moments..it will insinuate itself..as if a friendly pat on the shoulder and a look back..a smile.

I wished to find the movie,and searched and searched

Out of the words..
The Way popped out.
In my second language
Which is my first heard word.

Track 19 rolled and i knew everything is going to be alright..

And you Pilgrim
So gar away in some daylight unseen

Walk with Love and Joy this day
You are there.

Step lively now and let the road take you.
Some walk with more inside than whats in their packs.

I hope you find yourself in Santiago..with empty inside and a full pack!
Be Blessed Pelegrino

You walk with someones prayers whispered into the winds

Maybe some will make it to Santiago no?

Now Go!

Ah... William...

So sorry to hear that you've had a tough few weeks. El Camino does seem to echo loudly at such times.

Soul comfort.

As is the movie, taken at its essence.

Even now your prayers are arriving...

All of them.

For as on El Camino, no one walks alone.

The roads..well at least my roads
Painted a big waypoint ..indelible

I miss the vast empty
Void..and devoid of any company.

Only trees ...exclamation points against a silver blue sky.

The wind, playing the notes the trees are spelling out over hill,in valley and shaded ways.

The earth below
Patiently adding to the tally of steps.

Tempus Fugit..

Et Vendidi Fumum.

Every word uttered..nothing against the stillness of soul.

Yeah. I need to go..
Be Blessed Pilgrim
