Two and a half weeks to go and we are just beginning to think about the more detailed practicalities of our trek to Santiago de Compostela. Even so, we’re not stressed. This journey has been all about “letting go”. At Christmas, we hadn’t found anyone to care for the dogs, the house, had no airplane tickets, no idea as to a route, hadn’t cleared the journey with Ella’s school, and when I started to feel stressed about it, a friend said, “this is the beginning of the pilgrimage Suzanne.” And when I decided what my friend had said was true, within a few weeks everything was in place.
The same friend is throwing a farewell party/NICU fundraiser kickoff, May 12th. Call me for an invite!
Otherwise, Ella and I will be on the local CBC radio station on Tuesday at 4:50 p.m. We will be interviewed by Jo-Ann Roberts, the local host of the evening program, All Points West. Listen online if you get a chance!
