Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Pilgrimage starts the moment we become conscious that life itself is a sacred journey, carrying with it the responsibility to act accordingly.
—John Brierley

I'm going on a pilgrimage through Spain this summer. I don't tell you this because it relates to this blog's usual topic of books. It doesn't. I tell you because I will have internet access in Spain, so I'll be blogging about my pilgrimage right here on Jujubes and Aspirins. Be prepared.

It's called El Camino de Santiago. I'll be taking the route Camino Frances. I'll start in St. Jean Pied de Port in France, hike over the Pyrenees into Spain, west to Santiago, then a bit farther to Finisterre on the coast.

When I was making my itinerary, I didn't plan it this way, but the pilgrimage (not including plane and train time at either end) will last forty days and forty nights.
