Ultreïa et Suseïa. Onwards and Upwards. An exchange between pilgrims – one says “Ultreïa,” the other says “et Suseïa.” Encouraging each other to keep going, to walk further. In my interpretation, to keep moving forward, and to strive higher.
In my new book, “Windows and Doors of the Camino de Santiago,” I talk about these great words, Ultreïa et Suseïa. I also have 285 pictures of the best of the best of the best of my 1,300 windows and doors photographs from my Camino de Santiago walks. Windows and doors are my favorite subject to photograph when I travel.
In my book, there are a variety of pictures about windows and doors…for example, many with beautiful flowers and plants…some with geometric patterns…some modern, some old and abandoned…some with chairs and benches…some with hearts…and windows and doors that anyone who has walked the Camino would be able to relate to and recognize – with the symbolic scallop shell, the directional yellow arrow, the stone marker, churches and chapels, street names, images of Santiago, even backpacks and encouraging words of wisdom.
Translated into Spanish as well, whether you have walked some or all of the many Camino de Santiago pilgrimage routes; or are preparing to make a journey; or even if you have an interest in the Camino de Santiago, Spain, or windows and doors, I hope the pictures in my book either bring back enchanting memories, or are inspiring to you.
“Windows and Doors of the Camino de Santiago” is available on Amazon for $15.00.
