Walk in it - July 9

On the way to Astorga, there was a donativo in the middle of the forest today. We have had them before but this one was especially comfortable and satisfying. In addition to the abundant food and beverages, there were sofa beds and even a labyrinth. A labyrinth! On Camino. A symbol of pilgrimage on an ancient pilgrimage. 

What a great gift for us. I grabbed some watermelon and walked the labyrinth, turning this way, turning that way. So much seems to have come to us unscripted since this pilgrimage began. So much has changed and so much was unexpected. And yet we continue onwards, following our journey wherever we may be guided. This walk within a walk underlined the need to trust and follow our path. There was something comforting about this labyrinth in the middle of the forest. We were invited to this pilgrimage. And despite the twists and turns, we walk in it.
