My violet skirt walked about 2000 km with me in France and Spain. It lasted 4 summers on the Camino, but when I arrived in Fisterra, the poor skirt was totally worn.
When I decided to come back on the Camino, I looked everywhere for the same skirt. I tried eBay, I asked my firends, I looked in second hand shops... No skirt :-( Eventually, I posted a picture
of my skirt on my Facebook
page asking if anyone could help me.
I immediately received two proposals from friends who agreed to saw a skirt for me. Then, I received a message from Sophie with the following pictures taken in her garden. This nice orange skirt
was for me...
By "chance", Sophie lives near a park where I was just going to the next day. She took the time to meet me there and... it was magic : we spent the whole afternoon talking together, while our
children (the same age) were playing in the park.
A new friendship is born thanks to a simple skirt... I call this a gift ! The magic of the Camino has just started.
So, I wore a purple skirt on my way to Santiago...
Purple is the symbol of: royalty, nobility, spirituality, ceremony, mysterious, transformation, wisdom, enlightenment, cruelty, honor, arrogance, mourning,
And now, I'll wear an orange skirt on my way from Santiago.
Orange is the symbol of: energy, balance, enthusiasm, warmth, vibrant, expansive, flamboyant, demanding of attention.
