Stopping and Starting

They say that it's even more difficult to stop walking the Camino than to start walking. This is very true. After a grueling first week, everything falls into place. The joints move smoothly and the pack seems weightless. The rough part is getting used to the busy pace of life with all it's demands and distractions once you've left the peace of the trail. That, and your legs ache for a rough path.

Some people can't face real life. They are never able to stop walking--like the pilgrim from Barcelona. You just walk back and forth and back and forth and back and forth.....
