“When a man journeys into a far country,  he must be prepared to forget many of the things he has learned … the old ideals and the old gods,  and oftentimes he must reverse the very codes by which his conduct has hitherto been shaped.”  “For the courtesies of ordinary life,  he must substitute unselfishness, forbearance,  and tolerance, … He must not say “Thank you;”  he must mean it without opening his mouth,  and prove it by responding in kind…. he must substitute the deed for the word,  the spirit for the letter.” 

-Jack London “In a Far Country”

Please help support the pilgrimage! Notre Dame is raising money to help people in sweatshops who are under payed and abused by their employers. People have died because they can not find a job that will be able to support them, they work in shops that make the clothes you are probably wearing.


Please donate and help save those in 3rd world countries

In the fall of 2012, I paused my life in the States to walk across the Iberian Peninsula on the Camino de Santiago - the “Way of St. James”. 

I’m planning on walking the 800km of the Camino Frances in 2015 during my sabbatical…this video gets my juices flowing!
