Finisterre

David Whyte: from Santiago de Compostela ‘you do have the possibility of going on for three more days to this place called Finisterre … from the Latin, meaning ‘the ends of the earth,’ … the place where ground turns to ocean. The place where your present turns into the future’

How many times have you been to ‘Finisterre’ – and how many times have we wondered, all of us, about the unanticipated miracle? – that where ground gives way to ocean we become. We become voyagers. Wide awake, we set sail. We taste salt on our lips, and draw fresh air deep into our lungs, and ‘present turns into the future.’ This is the work of souls, the Camino, the Way. As one of David Whyte’s poetry collections has it, ‘The Sea in You.’

Drop me a note - I'm always glad to hear from you
