You’ll happily take the destination but the truth is, the journey is too arduous.*
Some of the Celtic Christian literature that emerged from these centuries took the form of immram, a word which might be translated perhaps as ‘wonder voyage,’ a sea journey to an other-world.**
Every worthwhile destination will require us to make a journey involving risks.
By worthwhile, I mean good and beautiful and true.
You may be the only person to understand why this place and why this journey.
Only you know how it sets your heart beating like wings of a great bird in flight, carrying you towards what you must do, making you who you must be.
It may take years, you may despair of never making it, but you come to understand how the journey is there to teach you, to make you, to bring you people to help, to grow in you what it is you hoped for and set out towards.
I hope for you and wish you well; you are en route.
