A Pilgrim Finds God on a Spanish Mountainside

Good morning!

Today's blog features a pilgrims journey on The Camino de Santiago, the way of St James. The journey winds towards Santiago de Compostela and over the mountains and plains of northern Spain for nearly 500 miles. Tony Collins describes his experience in great length and precise detail. You truly feel like you're right there with them.

Collins writes, "I learned, I think, two primary truths from my pilgrimage. First, the less you carry the easier it is to travel. For years my wife Pen Wilcock and I have been streamlining, disposing of books and clothes, heirlooms and ornaments. This needs to be accompanied by a metaphorical stripping, of hang-ups and anxieties and worries about status. The more firmly you grasp your pilgrim identity, the simpler this grows. A pilgrim learns to tread lightly upon the earth."
