Taking the question mark from 2019

For about six months (maybe longer), the title of this blog has been “Jen’s Camino Journey 2013, 2016, & 2019?”.

As of today, the tickets to Europe are in my possession.

When I heard the news that it was official, the reaction sounded like this:

  • Oh my GOD!!!! (excitement, repeat 6 times)
  • Oh. My. God. (dawning reality of the commitment, repeat 4 times)
  • Holy shit! (just once)
  • (silence)
  • Oh my God! (acceptance)

It’s real now, not just a rumination. Because I’ve walked twice already, I know that both highs and lows await, even if I don’t know precisely what they will be. My body knows how to walk. My heart knows how to open. My mind knows how to problem solve when needed.

But every pilgrimage is different. A a spiritual seeker’s wisdom is always deepening. Even if it’s the same path, it’s a different me, a wiser heart, a more clear spirit who walks.

In 2019, however, it won’t at all be the same physical path. More on that in a future post!

Wish me a buen camino and an Oh My God for good measure! 🙂

  1. Jen, I have been so curious about your Camino journey, whether you will return again… and was your last one really two years ago?? How is that possible? Looking forward to hearing more!

    1. I know. Time really does fly, doesn’t it? I’ve honestly felt out of touch with the whole Camino scene post-election, so I’m excited to get my pilgrim legs back! More soon!

  2. Wow! and OMG too!
    There’s something numerically magical about walking the Camino every three years and next year being your third one.
    I’ve always appreciated how much you share of your process – the inmate details of your personal experiences. Whew! Thank you Thank you Thank you.

    1. Thank YOU, M.E.G.!! 3 is my favorite number and although the timing and the trip are coincidental, I love the symmetry of them too. Like a 1-2-3 waltz! 🙂

      More to come, of course! So lovely to hear from you!
