After the Camino: Alive and Well

Not till we are lost, in other words not till we have lost the world, do we begin to find ourselves, and realize where we are…” —Henry David Thoreau, Walden, Chapter 8

This post is long overdue.

I’ve been meaning to write and most nights fall asleep drafting posts in my mind.

But where last year’s Camino inspired me to write, this year’s Camino seems to have had the opposite effect.

For the time being, I’m going to sit with that and trust the process…

I did, however, arrive home, safe and sound at the end of July.

Note: You can read more about my switch from the Camino del Norte to the Camino Francés after nine days here and here.

Wishing a very special “Buen Camino” to my mom’s dear friends, Jan and Mary Ann, who are about to embark upon their journey…

    Hi Elissa! You have been in my thoughts so much. From the breadcrumb details you left from your journey, I was wondering if this was the case. The words will come when it’s time. Trust that and don’t hurry them. Your Thoreau quote says it all. Hugs to you in the meantime — do let me know if you’re up for a conversation.

      Hi! Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts. “Breadcrumb details”, lol. xo

    I like the quote you have at the beginning. Is it a clue that will lead you to the next best step to take on processing your Camino?

      Thanks Christine. That quote definitely spoke to me and may very well be a clue…

    What are your thoughts?
