Day 39 - Rest Day

I was at a crossroad being so close to the finish line. I wanted to continue with only 90kms now to go, however I had to go back to my mantra of being patient. I decided to rest up whilst I was in this period of unwellness, as it would be foolish to jeopardise my walk at this late stage in the game.

I get cabin fever super easily - so went outside for some fresh air. As I went outside I was greeted by a swarm of dragonflies - hundreds flew around me. I shit you not - this is the 5th day in a row that this happened, amongst several other ‘altercations’ during the walk. I know sometimes you attempt to look deeper for a reason behind an occurrence, and I laugh as I write this, but I feel genuine peace when they are around - could this mean more than just random coincidences?

I did a bit of googling.. as google knows all.

"The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life."

It’s a strange world….
