and so it begins

a call on my cell phone in the executive lounge at Vancouver Airport, a reporter wanting to interview me… then notice from the airline that we won’t be flying executive class (!) and that we won’t be seated together! 

somehow, a fitting, beautiful contrast telling us that we have begun the pilgrimage, and that we will take whatever comes to us…. hopefully, with humour and grace…

cross your fingers, say a prayer, do a circle dance for us, whatever your chosen mode of prayer/good wishes may be… we are on our way!

  1. Go well the road, dear friends. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.

    May Our Lady of the Way hide you under the mantle of her love…

    Vaya con Dios!

  2. Hey guys,

    We’re thinking of you on el Camino to Santiago de Compostela, and hoping you’re having the time of your life, sore feet and all. ‘Wondering how you’re doing and who you’re meeting, and hoping it’s not 32 degrees Celsius, which the temp is going to reach today and tomorrow, in Southwestern Ontario.

    God bless and keep you, and shine His face upon you–and may the road rise up to meet you when your feet are just too darned tired to meet it on their own!
