📷 Le Puy—Preparing for the Journey.
I'm a few days into my walk and it's the first time time I've had wifi so I can get some pictures up. Before I post pics from the route, I have a few more pics from Le Puy, my starting point. The start of these journeys are always important I've found.
The inside of the crazy church was surprisingly beautiful. You're up on top of this volcanic spire, yet it feels cozy and peaceful. I sat a while and pondered my journey. To me it was a special place—the sort of place I travel to experience. It feels like a thin place where the distinction between Heaven and Earth blur. I didn't want to leave but the many miles of walking were calling.
I'm on my way! But wait! A renaissance festival is just getting under way! Why do I love this stuff so much?? I decide to delay my departure by a day.
This turned out to be less about the festival and more a much needed day to reflect on the journey ahead and spend some time connecting with God— while letting my internal frenzy settle down a bit. I'm thankful I decided to stay despite the urge to get moving. I ended up feeling much more centered starting out than I otherwise would have.
