I recently hiked a portion of El Camino Frances in Spain, traveling for about a month. During that time I posted a blog to document my journey as a way to share the experience with others and in the process found I enjoyed writing about that which arose in the day and became fodder for deeper reflection.
Since returning I have decided to keep writing offering my reflections on the day-to-day life journey. The lens I look through is influenced by my role as grief counselor in a hospice setting, the artist journey of mixing water and paint on paper, studies in meditation and mindfulness and my own unique life experiences of study, travel and exploration.
I am nearing retirement in about a year, from my role as grief counselor, and find that my reflections on the journey of a soul might be helpful for those who are trying to navigate life with its many transitions and opportunities for transformation as well as a way for me to continue to be of service.
I walk this journey with my husband, Leo, our two adult children and 4 grandchildren. They keep it real and greatly increase my opportunities for laughter and play.
