"Sociologists are better understanding a phenomenon known as 'desire lines', or the path humans naturally take while walking rather than ones they are forced to follow because of sidewalks and handrails—think of worn down paths in the park which veer off from the officials trails. In general, humans seem to prefer trajectories that afford them the most visibility, suggesting open, vibrant spaces."
I am thinking about 'desire lines' as I watch a lovely movie called 'The Way'. It is the story of a man walking the St. Iago de Compostella road. Like 'desire lines', the Camino wanders a path created by time and human faith and beliefs... many people following what they perceive to be the right path.
When the time is right in my life, is is my desire to walk the Camino... to be thankful, and remember, and atone.
In the mean time, I will dream and hope and imagine.
