Changing My Mind – Maybe

“You don’t have to do this,” my heard reminds me.

Really?  I ask, feeling a little lighter.

“Remember who’s in charge of your life?  You can do whatever you want.”

Oh, yeah… I thought. 

So I closed out of the six windows I had opened on my computer in my attempt to figure out where to fly into to start the Camino.  Maybe I don’t want to walk across northern Spain.  Or maybe today just isn’t the day to make the decision.

    I agree it is OK to change your mind. I am curious as to your reasons. No judgement, just interested in how others process their choices for these types of life pursuits. Good luck. To steal a line: Stay hungry, stay foolish.

    1. I’m thinking it was just my frustration at trying to figure out how to get to my starting point. But today I was reviewing old voicemail messages and had one from someone who’s walked the Camino recently, so I’ll call her today and get some help:) If someone could just plop me down at the starting point, I’d have no problem….

        You already are at the starting point, no?

      2. No…I have to fly in from NY. From what I could tell, I then had to take a train, then a bus to the starting point (St Jean-Pied-de-port). But I spoke with a woman recently who flew to Pamplona, and there’s a woman there who drives people to the starting point (an hour away) for 25 euros, which makes things a whole lot easier:)

    Sorry for the delay in following up. Although I realize you need to physically arrive in Spain, I did not intend your geographical starting point. Your Camino started the moment you decided to make a pilgrimage. Anyway, hope the plans are unfolding well. I signed up for the Flyfishing course at the Folk School next April. Mi Camino sera un poco mojado! Suerte.

    1. Indeed it did. Thanks for the reminder:)
