I’ve written a number of blog posts during the last week, since stopping the Camino de Santiago and going into ‘lock-down’ isolation with 3 fellow pilgrims here in Northern Spain. But my silent inner voice has shaken its head to them all.
I don’t know why, which is not unusual, but I know enough to know that there’s a good reason and that it knows best.
So, rather than just leave the website dormant indefinitely, I’ve decided to periodically post other people’s words that feel appropriate in some way at this time of uncertainty and change.
I’m grateful to a good friend for sending me the following poem this week:
“Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life, falls into your own cupped hands and you recognise and greet it. Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worthy of rescue.” 💜 - Martha Postlewaite
