Thoughts on Thursday: When You Don’t Know Where You’re Going Look Back.

Hello to you listening in Astorga, Spain!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Thoughts on Thursday.
My Camino memories come alive this time each year when I revisit my pilgrimage, re-read my journal notes. How come this annual ritual? On the one hand I’m honoring the Great Divide in my life: Before Camino and After Camino.
But in truth I want to hold close moments in time like an evening I walked down a cobblestone street in a village, stepped into a small bar for a glass of vino tinto and drank it outside overlooking The Meseta – the great, wide open plains I had crossed, miles and miles of walking. An elderly gentleman joined me saying that The Meseta gives him peace and tranquility.
When I returned my glass to the bar the owner says that the Tempranillo he served me was noted in The Wine Enthusiast. He held up a yellowed article and said, “See!” He was so proud of what he had produced in his vineyards.
I revisit these days because they help show me a way.
It’s true: when you don’t know where you’re going look back at where you’ve been.
Question: How do you look back to see your way ahead?
