Harpers Ferry, WV.
My heart sings reaching the ATC headquarters with “Hiker John”, free to share the classic hiker photo.
I look back in the archives and find my solo photo,
Back then, in October, 2007, I felt awesome having walked over half of the trail. But, I wasn’t ready to claim that I had found a hiking partner. My husband was still at home in Georgia. I believed that the world of the trail and the world of home were separate. What a journey of inner exploration, radical forgiveness, and outward change it’s been during the time between these photos.
I now know and experience that there is one world, one of joyous prosperity that blends walking with working, partnership and fulfillment.
Today I celebrate and acknowledge the journey undertaken to unite those worlds.
My heart sings!
