I have started walking the English journey, the coast to coast path from St. Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay. This first day the walk takes me along the cliffs. At the other end of this sea, unseen at the moment, the Irish Sea, lies Dublin where the first part of my journey ended. Does it go on, seamlessly? I believe it does not. Lots of things have happened. Thoughts have been written down, ideas have been mentioned. In a way, many things now have a perspective, so new things may have to fit in with that. But then again completely new ideas and thoughts will come up and they will also find their way into this journey. The end is an unknown. But even the beginning is an unknown. “All journeys have a purpose of which the traveller himself has no knowledge”, Martin Buber wrote. Somehow that sounds comforting. So I say good bye to the sound of the waves, the cries of the seagulls, the occasional fisherboat and I walk inland toward the Lake District. Next stop North Sea.
