Fredericksburg, VA

I used this Calvin & Hobbes comic to make a thank you card for Chris, Natasha, Ryan, Ashley, Ian and Jamie, because they showed us such great love. Paul and I will start walking this afternoon. Here's the revised route for our first leg, which will get us to the Little Flower Catholic Worker farm. Our whole trip should bring us back here in about five weeks. I look forward to returning.

Last night we had a fun dinner gathering at the house (and a nail-biter croquet match). And there was talk of a theme song for our pilgrimage. How about this one...

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
