Aching joints and a happy heart
The tudong practice in northern Spain begins . . .
From a 24 hour coach journey from London to Paris to Hendaye . . . to a rainy day in Irun with mist over the daunting hills ahead . . .
. . . up and down hills, along the coast, fortresses and fishing towns, the sound of seagulls and the wind through bamboo groves.
The greetings of "Buen Camino" from kind local people, meditating in churches, making friends every day, the blessings and gladness of the Way already filling the heart.
My friend Vicky's companionship and generosity a warm glow in the heart day and night.
The sacred everywhere. Every smile, meeting, breath - a gift and a benediction.
