All the pilgrims numbers for the first 9 months of 2014,1 January - 30 September



Dear Friends

This will be my last blog post for this year. Perhaps for longer. In a few days time I am off to walk the pilgrimage route of 88 temples on the Japanese Island of Shikoku. I have allowed 63 days for this pilgrimage including a few days visiting Kyoto and Tokyo.

I will not be in touch with anyone from home during this time save for emergencies. I will not be blogging. I want this to be a real period of reflection and evaluation for me. Since moving to Santiago and trying to serve pilgrims here my life has been filled with joy and good experiences. I want to take some time now to discern the best way forward.

Thank you all for visiting this blog. I have very much enjoyed writing it. I had intended this blog to be a source of Camino stories. Rather life has become so busy I now rarely write anything else but statistics! This one of the things I will be reviewing.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and may 2015 bring you much peace and happiness.

John

  3. John, Thank you so much for all you have done for us "perigrinos" over the years! May your time out be rich and rewarding as you seek guidance for the future. I will be thinking of you and praying for you, especially on OUR birthday!
    Blessings

  4. O honourable Henro, pleeeeeze - take me with you!!! Put my photograph at the bottom of your backpack and forget about it. I won't talk, won't ask to be fed, or bother you in any way. I'll just know that I am there following in the footsteps of Kōbō Daishi as a proxy pilgrim! Namaste John!
