Farewell my Beloved Santiago 

When I awoke to a stunning sunrise my emotions were scattered. Part of me wanted to shut off the alarm and go back to sleep and stay another day. Part of me wanted to pack for home. None of me wanted to tie boot straps and sling a backpack over my shoulders, but here I am doing just that.

My second trip to Santiago has been more than I could have hoped. Perfect weather, 3 visits to the Cathedral, obtaining my Compostela of Completion and enjoying the energy of the city. It is truly a unique place.

Good morning Lord.

St. James…I love your resting spot. Well done good and faithful servant.

A cross in the sky on the way to 7:30 pm Mass on Sunday. Coincidence? I think not…

And so I bid you fare thee well Santiago…I will miss you. Perhaps the Lord will bless me with a future visit to your magical grounds. Wishing you all a blessed Monday. Buen Camino!
