60 Seconds: Arriving Viana On The Camino.

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
Several years ago today I arrived in Viana on the Camino after setting out 8 days before from St. Jean Pied de Port, France, over the Pyrenees Mountains into Spain. How far have I walked? On average 12 miles a day. It’s not so much the distance I’ve covered on foot; it’s more the walk of my life. Amidst all my complaining about how everything hurts, the weight of my pack, whether I make a good pilgrim or not, the uncertainty of the weeks ahead, I’ve been given the Gift of Years – the long game view.
Nothing prepares you for the Camino; you set out and there you are facing yourself, your Bad Mind Radio, quiet, church bells, sheep, farmers, villages, pilgrims, crowded dorm rooms, snoring, wet clothes, fatigue, humility, laughter, vino tinto, achievement, support, nature, emotions, and deep rest. And then? And then, I set out to do it all over again making the path by walking, the path that will never be trod again.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic. Speaking of magic, would you share a nice rating/review on Apple Podcasts and when you come back bring your friends and rellies.
