Gentle Reader, the night before last I was notified that I would not be doing this walk with a friend as he is having a back problem. As I have put this adventure off for a long time, I am anxious to get started. I was able to change my flightt reservations and I am now only 3 days away from departing my retired life of leisure. So many thought running through my head. The one constant is that I can do it. I have read so much about others who have done this without a lick of preparation that it gives me confidence.
I harken back on life and words I spoke upon my retirement. I am humbled by my good fortune. I have “backed into” life from the beginning. From my breach birth to my last minute acceptance to West Pointt, to so many things. I must believe that this walk is possible. My desire to walk the Camino must eminate from somewhere and it is my responsibility to follow that.
Blogs are a strange thing. My intentions are to blog so that you can keep track of my progress but I can not resist the sharing of thoughts and observations along the way.
I must not accelerate my packing.
