With little more than one week into our camino, this life journey is already doing its magic. It seems that we have been on the road for ever. The conflict is that we have already formed deep friendships, laughed and even cried together. As we walk the path, we tell our stories and share our intimacies.
In just under one month, we may never see each other. It is perhaps like facing a death of sorts. We wish to spend every waking moment together and yet there is a need for lone time, quiet reflection and silent walking meditation. I experienced this conflict with Pepe. "Esto esta chupao."
