Who are you that I should have to lie?

Oh night thou was my guide
oh night more loving than the rising sun
Oh night that joined the lover
to the beloved one
transforming each of them into the other
(Lorena McKennitt lyrics from "Dark Night of the Soul.")

Thank you, solitary walker. I've been moved by your December posts in the spirit of the Camino.
