The Camino De Santiago de Compostela: 2012

I am intending to occasionally update the blog from the Camino De Santiago De Compostela.   I won't have a lot of time to do email and I am trying to do it as a pilgrimage, going into a deeply meditative place.  SO please excuse the scarcity of material.  Please pray for me.  I will be praying for all of us who are pilgrims, who are wandering but not lost.  I believe we are deeply found in the I/Thou described best by Martin Buber.  I am not taking any books with me, except the journal.  I hope I can remember all the songs I want to be singing, and the things I am hoping to remember to think about.  I am especially going to be thinking about water, soil, air and light.  I am worried about the sacred resources of the Earth, and our stewardship of it.  I am also thinking about death and dying, and loss and aging.  I am carrying my mom and my aunt, who have been lifted up.  I am remembering so many people I have loved, who are on the other side-- Dad, Fr. Fallon, Nana, John Hale, my other relatives and friends.  And some patients.  I believe that the process of trying to become more whole, more coherent, matters.  So I offer that, as the first reflection.  With love, martina
