I found integrating the lessons of the Camino very difficult in this environment because of all the distractions and focus on material things. 6 months later, 2 of my daughters had moved in with their dad and my oldest daughter was at University in London, so I decided to move to my cottage in Floral Park on Lake Couchiching. I spent most of the winter alone writing workshops, poetry, fairy tales and stories about my life experiences. Up until this point in my life, I have never been a writer but I took a Creative Writing workshop at Ryerson, Learned the basics and developed a style from there. I tried to write a book from my diary of the Camino, but couldn’t get the story down the way I wanted it.

I wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to be alone and to have a spiritual journey.
