From a New Perspective

Friday was a day of diversions on the virtual Camino, which gave me a day to catch up. It was a day to enjoy.


Let the wind move through – give over, and do not brace against the tern’s sharp trill.

Maybe the key to really enjoying life is to keep a beginner’s mind: to approach everything – or let it approach you – without a preconception of whether it will be something  that will be – or should be something – “enjoyable”.

After all, isn’t a large component of delight the surprise?

I remember when goosebumps were unfamiliar and mysterious. And something that thrilled me.
