That is the title of the latest book I am reading To Bless the Space Between Us by John Donohue, which is a book of Celtic Blessings. With this collection of blessings and his discussion I see how anyone can be a blessing to me and how I in turn can bless anyone. 🙂
It might be summed up in 3 lines from his printed “House Blessing:”
“May you have the eyes to see
That no visitor arrives without a gift
And no guest leaves without a blessing.”
And thus I leave in the morning to the airport with my driver Cristian who’s positive spirit always blesses me and I end up later in the morning at one of the most welcoming and relaxing of all hotels in Costa Rica, Hotel Banana Azul, Puerto Viejo.
After a delicious breakfast on their patio watching birds, I will walk down the beach to central Puerto Viejo (I always arrive too early for my room to be ready, so I leave my bags and do my first photo-walk). 🙂 Yes, this is an annual pilgrimage for me – always full of blessings!
In this quaint little Caribbean town I will walk, greet people, and discover new beauty every few meters, to behold and photograph both as art and pura vida people blessing me! I hope in my first walk to find focus on this year’s set of Caribe photos and the photo book to follow, as I record the beauty of the “graciousness of the destination,” inspired by another John Donohue quote shared last week:
“When the destination becomes gracious, the journey becomes an adventure of beauty.”
People Who Blessed Me Last Year
May I accept each of their blessings and may I bless them!
Join me on my journey as I blog blessings daily from Puerto Viejo.
