Gone for a Walk


Give me my scallop shell of quiet;
My staff of faith to walk upon;
My scrip of joy, immortal diet;
My bottle of salvation;
My gown of glory, hope’s true gauge
And then I’ll take my pilgrimage.
                             Sir Walter Raleigh

On May 18th I leave to walk El Camino de Santiago – The Way of St James. It is one of the oldest Christian pilgrimages with its destination map1 (1) The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela – the final resting place of St. James.  It will take me 4 weeks to walk over 300 miles to get there.  I will be making the journey with some amazing people and meeting others from all over the world that are doing the same thing at the same time.   I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
