It’s been a crazy productive month in my business. I launched a book last week and am thrilled to be $512 closer to my goal of paying for my Hedgebrook Master Class in cash. Heck, yeah! Take that, credit card debt!
Aside from work stuff, I’ve been trying to figure out how to write the next section of my Camino story. Truthfully, I’ve been trying to figure that out since I was living it in person and all the months since. (How’s that for foreshadowing?) My last days on the Camino were really intense and I’m grappling with conflicting desires to tell the truth, to make the story appealing, and to protect those involved.
I’m sure that I am not the first to grapple with this issue, but I finally feel ready to put the words down on paper for public view. Or 1s and 0s, as the case may be.
So stay tuned for the next installment on Monday and the continuing story of my Camino pilgrimage.
Thank you for reading!

Jen, glad you’re still here! I’ve been wondering about the ‘end’ of your Camino. I found myself nodding along with your words here, about struggling to know how to tell this part of your story. It’s something that I also struggled with… everything I wrote about my Camino was the truth, but there was so much more. But because some of it was extremely personal, and because some of it was about protecting or being respectful of others’ privacy, I felt uncomfortable sharing it. And yet, it’s part of my story, a big part. So for now, I just think that I will share it in the book that I write… one day…
Your comment makes me smile, Nadine. I like to think that we two could sit down for coffee and have a good long chat – about the journey, about what it meant, and what it’s like to write about it. Thanks so much for your sharing – it’s nice to know someone gets me. 😉
Like your Camino, mine ends in Finisterre, so there are many more days yet to write about, but the end is coming!
I hope you’ll write that book, by the way. I’m so glad to know you.
Sending a big thank you to Carol R for her generous contribution – THANK YOU!! ❤
