“One of the functions of a pilgrimage is to wake us from our slumber.” The Art of Pilgrimage, page 181
My pilgrimage has been a huge gift in so many ways, but perhaps the greatest is that it is waking me from my slumber.
It is waking me from my slumber of going through the motions, through my days, especially in the repetition of tasks: washing dishes, taking the dogs out, brushing my teeth.
It is waking me up to my full senses, to color and form and miracles.
It is waking me up to my lightheartedness and my joyful spirit.
It is waking me up to the fullness of my life.
