A Beautiful Day
- While the actual location of this award winning short video is
probably Mexico, it captures part of the ambiance of Costa Rica for
me, and is well worth sharing.
I was disappointed in myself that I had to give up the Romeria to
Cartago after only a couple of hours. I blame it on insufficient
preparation and a poor choice of walking shoes. But the sense of
being part of an enormous expression of spirituality was
overwhelming. Even late yesterday morning, when we headed home, there
were pilgrims just starting for the Basilica in Cartago, on the holy
day. And the fact that I am not Catholic has nothing to do with the
joy I still feel. Today is indeed a beautiful day -- the best day of my life.
