Be Mindful

two French men walking between Aroue and Ostabat, 
getting closer to the Pyrenees 
"Be mindful of the sound of your feet upon the road,
Be mindful of the warmth of the sun,
Be mindful of the smell of the earth after the rain,
Keep in mind the wonder of it all.

There’s a dance our bodies long to dance,
There’s a song our voices long to sing,
There’s a dream our planet’s dreaming of,
Sing and dance her dream upon the earth."

  1. Hi Margaret! I am really enjoying your mindfull blog and nice photography! But when are you planning to come back to Europe and commence your next walking route? Which one next time?

  2. Hi Annie,
    I am hoping that maybe in the springtime of 2012 or 2013 I will be back to take another walk- we'll see! I think I might walk from Cluny to Le Puy, and also on a route closer to the Pyrenees, passing through Lourdes then over the Somport Pass and onto the Camino Aragones.
