During the pilgrim blessing at Le Puy, I was encouraged to take a prayer card written in English.

Bless all my family. Keep them safe from harm. Give Arthur and Ava strength to live.

Stopping at each chapelle and cathedral along the Chemin, I have reflected on this prayer request.

Thirty-five days later I met my first American, a man from Hawaii. It is his prayer card I carry.

Camino magic. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.

For the tractor driver, I become his landscape. For countless generations, his family has seen pilgrims travers his farm.

For me, he makes the landscape with his tractor. What must he think of me with endless hours to walk and of himself with endless hours to work?
