Our journey begins in 41 days. This morning my usual 6 minute walk to the office took nearly an hour. Rather than my typical work shoes, I laced up my Salomon’s and headed out the door. The sidewalks were still went from the overnight rain and the numerous puddles and mud tested my shoes. Feet were perfectly dry when I arrived in my office! The route was uneven, broken, and had a slight upward grade toward the end. Solid training for the Camino.
Yes, the Camino is calling. It is strange. There is a yearning to walk the ancient pilgrim trail. I’m not religious, although I do have a strong background in various belief systems. But something is pulling at my soul. I hope to discover the source along the way.
