Beautiful words from someone who was really moved by the story of the Sorrow Stones...
Thank you for sharing the Sorrow Stone story on video. It was wonderful to see some of the people and locations you have told me about and that are in your books and CDs.
We first met in London, Ontario just after the release of your first book "My Camino
" while you were promoting it and my partner Celtic harpist, Jennifer White and myself were promoting her CD "Clarsach" and performing at the London Convention Centre during a "Women's Weekend Event". We traded CDs, "Clarsach" for your first story CD "Stone by Stone
" and you gave me my first "Worry Stone" and told me the story behind the stones. You have since, on later pilgrimages along the Camino
carried a stone for me, thank you it means a lot to me.
Since our first meeting I have past along that story and many stones to many people and there always seems to be at least one small stone in my pocket. As Andreas said, "it's only a story", but it's a story that he passed on to you, and you passed on to me (and many others through your books, talks and walks).
A story is like a stone, a journey, a life, it's the belief that you put into it that makes it real and makes it work. It helps change the story into a legend or a belief. If you don't believe, it may not work... but if you do believe... anything is possible.
Sue, thank you for making me a believer,
