Found: in the guestbook of the Albergue San Miguel

Written last night, before I arrived:

"Before the new chapter can begin, the old chapter must be closed.

Change from being who you were to being who you are."

It's signed Paulo Coehlo, so I'll venture it's a quote, unless of course, Mr. Coehlo stopped by here last night....

One small request, Camino: Any chance "she who I am" could have a stronger right ankle than "she who I was"?

  • Walking with you vicariously; sending strong thoughts for the ol'tobillo.

    Say hi to Paulo for me and watch out for the black dog ;-).

  • Hello!
    I'm also a big Paulo Coelho fan and I don't know if you’ve heard about his blog
    I started as a fan and now I'm collaborating with him and thought that you would like to enter his universe.
    Check out the blog, if you want, or subscribe to his newsletter

    You'll see a community of warriors of light sharing ideas, dreams and most importantly following their personal legend.

    "The secret lies in the present
    - if you pay attention to the present,
    you will be able to improve it.
    And if you improve the present,
    whatever happens afterwards will be better too.
    Each day brings us Eternity."

    See you there and have a great day!

  • A couple of months ago I read Paulo Coelho's The Zahir in which he talks about the Camino.
    You never know, he might've done it again?
