This time last year I started walking. It was a walk of healing following a profound experience.
The most northern point of my walk was a beach called Te Arai Point in New Zealand. On that beach I picked up a scallop shell which is the symbol of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route from France across northern Spain.
It’s been a year long journey both within and physically and is by no means complete, but looking out over Rome this bright sunny morning gave me a sense of satisfaction.
I still need to work on being brave and strong and honouring myself. I make progress one step at a time, like the pilgrim.
