Camino de Santiago 2016
Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek
Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.

To walk far, carry less --
In just two days, I'm off to Spain for six weeks. I thought I was traveling light when I walked the Camino in 2014. Then I carried 20 pounds, but there were days when 20 pounds seemed far too heavy. So I've managed to reduce the weight to 15 pounds even including a few luxuries: an iPod full of recorded books, Starbucks instant coffee, and a mascara.
