I forgot to mention in the video that in 2008 I had been (re)listening to Alanis Morissette's Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. The song that I loved the most was "thank u", a rock ballad about Morissette's spiritual journey to India. Needless to say, it had a big influence...
In 2013 I returned to Spain, and re-walked the Camino. In the last town before the Cruz de Ferro, Foncebadon, I walked into an albergue I had visited on the first trip. And what song, of all the songs possible in the world, was playing on the radio? Yep. Alanis Morissette's "thank u".
Freaky coincidence? Synchronicity? The universe telling me to keep right on saying thank you? Either way, I'm immensely grateful.
I hope you enjoy.
