I have a map on my office wall.
It is an old National Geographic map of the British Isles, printed in 1974.
A Traveler’s Map, eh? OK.
I mapped my travels.
These pushpins mark the trip I took around England (with a brief but memorable nip into Scotland) in September 2007. Though it is several years later, and though all my dearest friends will attest that I have a shocking memory, I remember much of this trip with amazing clarity and in detail.
It was one of those things that happen once in a lifetime, shaping who you are and how you are a person. I learned more about myself in that short 12-day trip than I have in any similar time period of my life. It was a time of awakening, realizations, new awarenesses, and an endless experience of Thin Places.
During this year of 2012, I’m planning to write a few posts to remember and celebrate some of the incredible things that happened during that adventure.
One of the first will focus here:
Particularly on the charming town of Ely and a memorable afternoon tea two lovely ladies and I shared at the Peacocks Tearoom.
Happy weekend to all!
