Being on the Camino I can't help but think of the life of Christ and how he had to carry his cross to his death. We all bear some sort of cross. For Ricardo it has been his heavy pack. It is heavy because it contains his computer and his camera so that he can film while on the Camino. He just finished film school at UT and is passionate about his work. It is a bit ironic that that is what is causing his suffering. But he has really been amazing in his resilience and determination.
So what is my cross? I think at this time in my life it is my journey to heal the wounds of a divorce and a broken family. I have been slowly walking through the process of reconciling with my now ex wife. I have been sharing this story along the way with the ladies I have met and I have received many indications that I am on the right path. Sometimes we have to bear our crosses for a long time to see the answer clearly enough to let them go.
Today was another remarkable 22km day. We walked through several nice towns along the way and saw many cool sites below. Feast your eyes on today's bounty and enjoy the Camino with me. Tomorrow we will take a day of rest in Estella and hope to heal our bodies so that we can continue on with a lighter step.
