It’s been a challenging day. I’m tired. My feet hurt (for the first time since I started). I walked further than I intended to. It was a day of saying goodbye – to new friends, and to the vineyards that have filled the countryside for the last couple of days. The landscape has shifted from vineyards to more mundane agricultural. Walked past several large fields of sunflowers, which are now past their prime and rather sad looking. Ended the day in a very basic alberge, which is adequate but not much more than that. I’m feeling sad and crabby. But the good news that is am noticing and acknowledging my feelings, without judgement or a need to “fix” them. That is a step in the right direction.
I know that tomorrow will be a new day, filled with new opportunities to experience the wonders of this world. And as for today, I plan to go to bed early.
