No, he was waiting for Godot in Sarria. :)

So, a thread about graffiti has prompted me to take my 35 year old copy of Waiting for Godot off the bookshelf. Act 1 begins with:
Estragon, sitting on a low mound, is trying to take off his boot. He pulls at it with both hands, panting. He gives up, exhausted, rests, tries again.
That sounds vaguely familiar. :)

Oh, the perils of freelance working and logging into the forum. It's going to be a slow-work day.

"While everyone else
Hobbles round with sore feet
Your choices should feel comfortable
Or they aren't your choices at all.
Why limp when you can sprint?”

I think this is good for the Camino:

“Create all the happiness you are able to create; remove all the misery you are able to remove. Every day will allow you, --will invite you to add something to the pleasure of others, --or to diminish something of their pains.”
- Jeremy Bentham

Or for all the Irish Pilgrims of my vintage, "Under Cleary's Clock" :):)
I have stood there........... and on occasion been "stood up" there.
The joys and tribulations of youth.

Now that brings back a memory or two (I'm a Dub)! If the now famous Laura was Irish, that would definitely have been her place to meet that Portomarin date. She might even have put on her party dress, like Mary Jane in the Tom Petty graffiti :)
