Heading for Camping Pech Ibert

"I’m now aware that what draws me back to pilgrimage time after time

is the simplicity of the pilgrim’s life.
We get up each day, pack the same few things into the same rucksack
and set off following a well waymarked path.
We have time to think, to pray, to reflect.
Our needs are simply food and a bed."
~Johnnie Walker
on `The Simple Life'

My first few weeks out of Le Puy were at times lonely

but they were precious days indeed
as I had time to reflect on my life.

My feet kept walking on the land, finding their rhythm
and as the kilometres stretched out ahead
there was no hiding from some conversations
with God or myself
about things past and present.
