Monday Morning Musings

“Ask not for whom the bell tolls”
Sorry if this post doesn’t look normal. I’m doing it on my iPhone.
My trip has gone very well so far. I have two days of walking under my belt. It is more challenging than I thought but the countryside in Spain is simply spectacular.
I’m meeting people from all over the world and I’m collecting great stories for my book.
I walked the last 10k Saturday with a chap from Finland. We were having a beer at our hostel at the end of the day. Of course, I was asking a lot of questions. He looked at me and said, “In Finland, we are comfortable with silence.” No one ever told me to shut up so politely!
Yesterday, I was passing through Estella and heard the peel of bells for Sunday mass. Right next door to the church was a winery that had a spigot dispensing free red wine. I think that the winery drew a bigger crowd.
I am publishing this on Sunday as I’ll be on the road early tomorrow.
Have a great week.

    You always present us with food for thought, Len. I hope this journey will not be too hard on you. I so admire how you enthusiastically decide on an action plan and then carry it out. You are an inspiration for those of us who are slower to act on something that grabs our attention. Blessings be with you. Enjoy the conversations and the silences!!!

    In Finland we are comfortable with silence. I have NEVER heard a better line – ever. Thank you for sharing.
