Day 34 – When we looked out the window this morning it was foggy, windy and cold.  Again when I awoke, every cell in my body was tired.  I was tired of walking, living out of a backpack and just wanted to be done.

With no other way out, we grabbed some toast and coffee then headed out.  I just knew this was going to be anther brutal day of a steep rocky downhill. battle to the bottom.  Again my fears were wrong.  The fog lifted, the sun warmed us up and the downhill path was smooth and grand.  It was a perfect cool morning with some of the best scenery ever seen.  This was a day of heaven on earth.  I was with Morgan (the love of my life) and life was grand.  Here there was another special moment ( the second on this trip).  It’s just like the feeling of love I must say.  I was so excited I ended up doing my best James Brown rendition of “I feel Good!” swinging my walking stick like a microphone. Glad that is not on tape.

Today I walked to hold the high watch for all the conflicts in the world.  This may sound airy fairy, but why can’t people put down their weapons?  Why are religions not tolerant of others?  A lesson from Unity Eastside is we celebrate and honor most others beliefs.  Why is it , if you don’t believe my way, you….?  I think John Lennon and his song Imagine were on to something.

About Obama and Putin walking this path, when you learn about their family, their life, you find we are all connected.  What if the leaders of Congress had to walk this path together?  Helped each other, and break bread with each other?  We might have a different outcome.

We are now thinking about continuing on to the coast after Santiago.  Have we lost our minds?

71.6 miles to Santiago.
