Sometimes, I’d like to just stop time and freeze frame a moment. Like today, after months of planning it is finally here. As I wait for my flights, watch the incredible crowds of people jostling through Atlanta airport and tell myself: wait! Right now—consider where you are and what is happening! Will I remember this moment? No, because the careful and deliberate plan is now flooding toward me and the next step must be taken. Good thing I’ve written down where I need to go.
changed my hiking shirt strapped on my pack and set off for the cathedral to get a stamp. There happened to be a rock band playing on the steps. I knew they were welcoming me and I was grateful.
the walls of my room are old stone. Pilgrim dinner is at 7 PM €10 for three-course meal and wine. I only slept three hours on the plane so I think I’ll sleep well tonight. First day in the bag.
I am so happy that you are able to do this again as it brings you so much joy. Stay safe and have fun. Love you.
