Snow in the UP!

You look superb! So glad there is now some snow for you. Bet you are using different muscles now!

I hope you enjoyed your visit to Holy Trinity in Oconto. My parishioners were a little surprised by your presence but are no strangers to hospitality. The first Mass in northeastern Wisconsin was celebrated here in 1669. The early missionary priests would be familiar with the journey you are making. Hopefully you meet only friendly wolves. And nice people. Godspeed.

Happy New Year my pilgrim friend. I wish you beautiful pathways, fresh snow, crisp air not too cold and kind and generous hostos along your route.

Ann, it was a great honor meeting you today. Without knowing it, you gave me a chance to open my heart again. I know this was a once in a lifetime opportunity & I am so happy to have been the one fortunate enough to have it. The lesson I took away from our short encounter with each other is something I know I could never learn anywhere else. Thank you for trusting me :)

Happy New Year Ann,
I've enjoyed reading your posts and just now saw that I could add comments and communicate back. Glad to hear that for the most part people are treating you well (except for that grumpy grumpster in the big SUV).
Hurray for snow and it's quiet, beauty, and crunchy sound it makes. I'm dreaming up a kid's Winter Pilgrim dress up doll know the kind that used to have some waxy cardboard pages with the character in some location and you dressed the character with plastic cut outs of clothes that magically adhered to the character and could be pulled away without tearing. Only in the Winter Pilgrim dress up doll book there's a picture of you, always with the same clothes on and the children pick cut outs of different locations and shrines to paste behind you!
It's freezing here in Oregon, with ice covering every limb and leaf...nothing is moving, we're all quietly stuck where we are....and I'm loving it. Thinking of you out in the cold...making the miles...seeing what there is to see...and connecting the people from town to town to town. Rock on Ann.
