The Isle of the Manx

I am walking the guided Triskelion Pilgrimage on the Isle of Man. The isle is between Ireland, Scotland, and England. They are connected to the United Kingdom but a separate country. It’s 34 miles long and they speak English, but also Manx.

Phil put this together with help from other walkers. It is 4 days, about 40 miles total.

Friday pilgrims

Most of the walkers live on the island, although most are not native to it.

Some of us are staying in this wonderful place, and we are being well fed by Karen and David. Today was 13 miles, tomorrow 8.

    Note Rembrandt’s The Prodigal Son on the wall. It seems to show up quite often along these spiritual paths…and near confessionals of humble or great RC churches in France. Is there a copy of Henri Nouwen powerful, deeply moving meditation ” The Return of the Prodigal Son” among your hosts books?
