The Camino is an endless repetition, a universal calling, a prayer: Walk. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
The Camino is not what you think it is.
And not what you think it should be.
It is everything and it is nothing.
It forces you and moves you, teases you and slams you, questions you and fights you.
It blisters you, depletes you, weakens you and at the same time toughens you, builds you, strengthens you.
It questions you, talks to you, listens to your silence.
It is the outside of the inside of you and everything in between.
The Camino is sinner and Saint, history and legends, believers and non-believers. It is scores of nationalities all marching in the same direction, all for different reasons, but each following the same road toward the same destination.
The Camino is 500 miles of sorting out, taking in, letting go.
It is a physical, mental, and emotional reality check of what you think you are and who you are.
The Camino fills you, then empties you. It teases you and calms you.
And does it again and again with each coming day.
Walk. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
There is comfort in repetition.
Watched the movie. Recognized everything. Just saw a movie of men who walked 7000 miles over the Himalayans. That next?
