I’m currently back in the states and sorting through my photos and notes ….
It is precisely 76 days until I travel to Madrid then on to Sarria to walk the Camino de Santiago.
My planned route, Sarria to Santiago. Santiago to Muxia. Muxia to Finisterre -“the end of the world”.
I have been planning (dreaming) for years, training for many, many months. It has been tough and a quite the education of the inter workings of my body. I am not an athlete, and quite frankly, not much of an exerciser. But I have to say .. there is something so calming and tranquil about wandering through the nature trails by my home.
I plan to keep a journal and a photo journal of the things that I have learned, the wisdom I will surely learn and of the many people I hope to meet along the way.
So, if you have never been on this magnificent journey of pain and self discovery, you can follow along with me ..without the pain.
I would be interested in hearing from those that have made this journey, their place of origin and if their life changed upon their re-entry back in to their daily life.

I spent a beautiful lightly snowy and foggy (early) morning at a gem of a cemetery over looking a beautiful lake. I must say, I was a bit spooked at times as the gates had just opened and there wasn’t a soul (no pun intended) insight. But I thoroughly enjoyed it and wandered for sometime, losing myself in the peace, quiet and fog.
This cemetery was founded in 1871, This quite interesting story began with several New England-born men and women who came to Minnesota around the late 1800’s. These were the men and women that helped to build the city of Minneapolis. They were progressive, enlightened and envisioned this amazing plot of land as a place for the community members to be buried in beauty and tranquility.

If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this like is a wandering to find a home’, why should we not look forward to the arrival

Hang in there…
I do promise that I am working hard to edit thousands of photos and researching them. Unfortunately for me, I cannot just post one photo. I need to know the whole story or put a sequence of photos together.
As it gets closer to being buried in the snow, I will be taking less photos and posting more.
Also I have been spending much of my extra time planning my trip to France and dreaming of all I photograph 💭

I am having so much fun from taking the photos, to doing some research and, then posting them. Currently, I have well over a thousand that I am trying to work on. Yikes, a little over zealous, I think. I am very happy to share this passion with those of similar interests.

The Notre Dame Cathedral was the largest religious building in the West until the Amiens Cathedral was built in the 13th century The Amiens Cathedral is the tallest in the Picardy region of France. It is located about 75 miles north of Paris, France. Unfortunately, I did not get to see this particular Cathedral.
The Notre Dame cathedral was started in about 1163 and completed in about 1345. During the French Revolution, in the 1790’s, it suffered great destruction. Over time, many different architects worked on this famous Cathedral, if you were to study this from all angles, you may be able to see the slight variations in the style.
The stained glass, sculptures and gargoyles are quite impressive. There are over…
