Oliver Schroer A song for all seasons

A song from the Canadian fiddler Oliver Schroer.
The text in this clip is an article published in 2008,
just a few days before he died.

Oliver walked the camino with his violin and played in several churches (cd camino) The music in this clip is from another cd.
Just close your eyes and open your ears...

Enya Pilgrim how you journey

Pilgrim how you journey
3' 12"

Pilgrim, how you journey
On the road you chose
To find out why the winds die
And where the stories go.

All days come from one day
That much you must know,
You cannot change what's over
But only where you go.

One way leads to diamonds,
One way leads to gold,
Another leads you only
To everything you're told.

In your heart you wonder
Which of these is true;
The road that leads to nowhere,
The road that leads to you.

Will you find the answer
In all you say and do?
Will you find the answer
In you?

Each heart is a pilgrim,
Each one wants to know
The reason why the winds die
And where the stories go.

Pilgrim, in your journey
You may travel far,
For pilgrim it's a long way
To find out who you are...

Pilgrim, it's a long way
To find out who you are...

Pilgrim, it's a long way
To find out who you are...

To the End of the World

And again a very recommended mini movie on the Camino Frances
by Hank Leukart.
I know I'm hooked to pilgrimage and the camino. Movies like these probably only encourage these feelings.
And again, if you walked this route, you're into memory lane.

Closer to yourself, he says.
Trailrunners for boots, he says.
Why did we go?
Visit David.
Wake up and just walk and walk and walk.
"The camino is gods dream for how people should be when they are with each other."
Well. You know...


The video is here:



Hank Leukart has a travel weblog with more information on his voyage,
and also more on his other trips. 

Ich bin dann mal weg Trailer

The USA had it's way: The Way.
By the end of the year Germany has
'Ich bin dann mal weg'.

In 2001 Hape Kerkeling walked to Santiago and published a popular book on his experiences.
Being a comedian, it features some comedy.
(All fragments in this blogentry are in German.)

The movie 'Ich bin dann mal weg' is directed by Julia van Heinz, and Devid Striesow plays Hape Kerkeling.

Here's the trailer:
