New (Mini) Pilgrimage

New Year's Resolution: be a better blogger.

After returning to the US in August, I was invited to the Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico to help other pilgrims. I have great hopes of exploring many pilgrim caminos to Chimayo and encourage the establishment of a network of pilgrim houses like along the Camino de Santiago in Spain.

More on this as it develops, but in the meantime, today I'm making my way to Purgatory, an old mining town in Colorado, USA to explore a pilgrim camino along the Old Spanish Trail.  Deviating from my norm, this time I'm bringing my mobile phone and will try to send in photos when I can to show the route.

Follow me over on, a page I set up specifically for pilgrimages to Santuario de Chimayo.

Dear Ann, happy new year! Good to see you're alive, I was worried not having received your response to my Christmas e-mail and not seeing any trace of you in this blog for the last half a year. Congratulation to your incredible achievement, the Latin America pilgrimage, you are incredible...:) I wish you a great success with the Chimayo project.
God bless and take care! :)

Got you where you live!

I loved your remarkable walks. I did think you were a bit egotistical about the walks but tolerated that.

Then I find, like most US citizens, you can't accept any view which doesnt fit exactly with yours. You suppress views like mine which politely say 'I have no faith', but appreciate yours.

You and your country hate free speech, and love to suppress any voice but your own, with bombs and bullets - or with deletions.
