Before I Go

Opinions differ on blogging the Camino de Santiago. Some say the idea is an oxymoron or worse. The Camino should be a time for introspection and Finding the Answer. Others say that there should be a diary of an expedition like this. And since diaries are so last century, that implies a blog. I can't choose between those respectable positions. So I plan to chronicle my long walk mostly because, traveling by myself (well, with a small group and a sag wagon, but the chances of much companionship there are up in the air), I may go bonkers with no outlet for my thoughts. Then again, I may sink into a well of self-centered meditation, and this could be the omega as well as the alpha of my postings.
