I’m going on an adventure.

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”

-Jack Kerouac

I always liked that quote above, despite that I actually really love the office I work in. To me it’s a good reminder to go after your dreams. Make what may seem impossible, possible. Waiting around for “someday” isn’t a mantra I like to live by. And on this Camino journey, I’ll certainly be climbing lots of “goddamn mountains.”

Today after spending a little more time with friends in Los Angeles, I’ll board my flight to Madrid, then head on to Oviedo. I am excited and ready for my next Camino journey. But I’m also struck with the reality that this one may be more challenging than my walks in the past.

They say “The Camino provides” and I am hoping that saying rings true for me on this walk.

  1. And, as you climb those damn mountains, your admiring cheering section from around the world and here at the Lovestead will be symbolically applauding your grit, determination, vision, courage and example. And, maybe because of your inspiration, each of us will find our own version of a Camino to conquer. Be safe. Have fun and share. Hugs and much love. Mom Love

  2. Dear Annie, I wish you a buen Camino. I admire your consistency in taking this time! I wish I could say that about myself. But one day…
    Liebe Grüße ☺️😉
