I made La Gineta in good time, had a coffee there and put on lining socks for the next stage of the journey to La Roda, 20 km away. It was a return to the day before as if the truck stops of yesterday had not happened. The cool morning, stark colors, bright reflection of the road and stones fields with occasional trees, made a masterpiece.
Left truck stop in the dark, walked two hours on a service road, made La Gineta in good time, the Camino of two days ago was waiting for me.
Beauty kept me distracted. I now understand why John of of the Cross and Teresa loved the term “nada”, nothing, in their spiritually, they learnt it from their surroundings.
