So here we go. I asked Allison today, “When does/did/will the Pilgrimage begin?”
Is it when we left the house this morning? When we walked out of church this morning with our backpacks? When we get off our last flight? Maybe when we take our first step out the door if the Albuerge in St Jean Pied de Port. Or maybe it was last April when we began to prepare. Or possibly 7 years ago when I first said “on our 25th anniversary we should walk the Camino “
It is really tough to say. All I know is that I’m pretty happy about it. It will be an adventure and from all accounts the start of something new.
