Sunset at Finesterre
I made it to the end of the Earth!
I have been back in San Diego for 3 days, and the culture shock is wearing off. I was sad to think that this amazing experience had come to an end, that it was all over. Then a Camino friend of mine reminded me of what was said at the Pilgrims mass in Santiago. The priest told us "Sanitago is the end of the trail for you, but not the end of your journey. Once you have started, it goes on for the rest of your lives. Everyday you walk the path of your Camino." I had forgotten, that the Camino was only the outward expression of an inward journey.
Since then, I have been happy to be back and each day I am living the lessons I learned, and decisions I made on the Camino. It definetly helps to have a network of Camino freinds to keep the feeling of connection alive. Already I have visited with four of them since we all finished. Toni and Pablo in Barcelona, and Lara and Maire in Ireland. Soon, I will see Cinnamon, possibly at the Burning Man festival this August, and Maire and Pablo both have plans to come to
California this year. So the Camino goes on, and everyday I am so thankful for the experience and all my Camino friends. Thank You All of You!
Oh and of course swiming in the Ocean yesterday was great! Now I am ready to get back to the business of studying herbs and points! Yeah!
