Yesterday I walked through another very hot day. There was little shade to hide from the sun but I got lucky halfway through my day. As I was walking I stumbled across a little village where I was able to get some ice for my water. I had two pears and a banana for lunch. It was great! Many times on my long walks in very hot days, I am unable to find a place to get something to eat let alone some ice! So I was very grateful for that discovery.
The village itself was very small. There were a few houses and the store where I got the ice, but there were no people or cars. It seemed like a ghost village in a way.
After I had my brief respite, I continued walking into the heat. The terrain consists of a few fields here and there and a very flat land. There isn’t much to look along the way. As I walked, my thoughts kept going back to Joplin. Somehow I feel very spiritually energized. I assume I feel this way because I had the chance to be surrounded by so many great volunteers that are pouring in each day and contributing to the hope and the community of Joplin. I feel a high spiritual energy and it is great!
Tomorrow I am probably going to take a day off. It has been awhile since I took a day of rest. I know I’m going to need at least a day long break from the hot and humid air. Hopefully this rest will help me get my body on track to continue the journey.
