There are many lessons learned from Hadrian's Wall pilgrimage, so let me begin reflecting here, adding on to the list in the days to come:
First, I don't control weather on pilgrimage. No one does. Weather happens, so get over it. Pick up our umbrella, galoshes, or put on sunscreen and t shirt, and move forward. Live with the weather rather than fight it. I can wish and pray for a change in weather--and I've lived in enough places where people say that if you stay put, the weather will change more to our liking--but I/we do not control weather. It is out of our control...as is most of life (98%).
