40 Days to Go...Counting Down

40 days remaining - yes, I will be in Spain in just 40 days. I say "just" 40 days but it seems like a long wait.

40 days in Spain - yes I will be in Spain for about 40 days. I should say "just" 40 days because it seems like such a brief visit.

The days spent waiting to depart on this adventure go slowly while the days spent walking the Camino will go quickly...Clearly time is a mortal concept.

We human just think it is an accurate measure.

Life is good... as I count down the days.

Peregrina Ginn, your time on el camino will stretch out as wide as the landscapes. What could take you 8 or 9 hours in a car will take you 40 days to cover. And when you get to the end, you will feel as though you have been away for years.
You could feel like the medieval monk in the legend who lingered in the woods listening entranced to the divine song of the bird in the tree. When the bird ceased, he heard the monastery bell calling him to prayer, but all the world had changed and none of the monks recognized him for the bird's entrancing song had lasted a hundred years.

I look forward to that kind of time sense...or is it timelessness? 8-)

What a lovely story...

Thanks Sil, for all you share...
