This is a quote from the 60's classic 'Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance' which was a reflection on the meaning of life in a road trip metaphor.
I guess it is about ' stopping to smell the flowers' or about the modern cliche on the journey and not the destination.
The Camino is getting closer and it is beginning to take on a bit of a scary look....the distance is huge....However, We won't be in a hurry actually and we will journey by foot and if not by transport.....
I think the camino will not be about a path but about PEOPLE. It has been more interesting to follow blogs about the people walking than just learn about the WAY
That sounds a bit 'soapy' but I am looking forward to this regardless of how far we walk or pilgrimage
So we will festina lente - hasten slowly
really " what's the hurry?........."
