You Get What You Need

To commemorate this auspicious day (leaving to Spain), I wanted to share a little..hmmm.. ditty, familiar, perhaps to some of you (!) but particularly poignant and meaningful to me, as I embark on this am-I-totally-loca? adventure:

No, you can’t always get what you want (a camel)

No, you can’t always get what you want (an alpaca)

No, you can’t always get what you want (a donkey)

But if you try sometime, you just might find

You get what you need…

Well it turns out that the Universe and my angels

were keeping watch,

taking notes,

paying close attention,

because it would seem

they determined that, at least for the first ten days,

what I really needed to find was this:

A German guy named Ansgar (aka Oscar), two donkeys AND a dog.

And so, putting one foot in

front of the other,

the journey continues… stay tuned! donkey


  1. Now I understand, I went to your Camino project and listened to your message. My prayers will be with you all the way. What a blessing to have your small group to accompany you on you pilgrimage. It took me back seeing the provision.
