Todays trek: Najera to Santo Domingo
After such long treks these past few days, walking 14 miles on mostly even trail seemed like a treat.
We walked quietly through a two smaller towns and a number of grape fields. All in all, a good day.
I got to thinking about how many of our normal days at home are non eventful, but good days. My guess no, my experience says, most of my days are good days.
It is nice once in a while to be able to acknowledge and appreciate that our regular, everyday good days are actually quite good.
But we don’t. We might label them as boring, unproductive, lazy or some otherwise negative connotation.
We view our regular days through the privileged eyes of expectation. We want our coffee hot, our eggs cooked perfectly, or day exciting and our rest thorough and long lasting.
When we don’t get what we expect we are as disappointed as a child who wants a second dessert. We know have it pretty good but we want more just the same.
So these little reminders are good for the soul. And in my case good for my feet.
Today was a good day, I hope you recognize that so was yours.
Siempre pa’ adelante!
