"Footprints: The Path of Your Life" by Catholics in Action

Like a birdie in the morning sun...

New site. New year. New volume of chronicles. Well, maybe it's not correct to say a new year in July but it's understandable that things didn't go as planned even in this project given the world's current situation. Dearest friend who reads this small webzine of mine in a quiet corner of the Internet, I hope you are well and safe.

  • The last chronicles issue released was back in October and under this category, there's too many to list so the stuff will have their stories told in upcoming issues. I will enumerate keywords to summarize them:
    • pi-hole
    • AWS, Azure, GCP
    • paid e-mail services
    • Manjaro KDE Plasma 5
    • Fedora 32 Gnome
    • Ventoy
    • Telegram
    • YouTube Studio
    • podcasting
    • SingleFile
  • I really was planning on giving Gatsby another chance but I found Publii while looking for a CMS to use so now this new site is built with it. If the new updates in Gatsby didn't break chronicles 2019 then I would still have been using it. NPM is hell and I really wonder why people suffer Gatsby when there's Hugo. So 2019 is archived which was the plan anyway but now it's on a separate site. I hope Publii would thrive. The biggest reason I chose it is because it's a desktop app. The setup is also a breeze and the editor is easy to use.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
The Fellowship of the Ring (Book I, Chapter 2) - The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien

Morning Light - Footprints: The Path of Your Life

The featured photo is from the documentary film "Footprints: The Path of Your Life" by Catholics in Action. This is my first music video after a really long time. It features the Footprints movie and Josh Garrels's song Morning Light. I released it in time for the feast day of St. James last July 25.

The music video is now on YouTube and Vimeo.

Including here the video description:

Music Video Premiere: July 25, 2020 - Feast of St. James
This music video is a marriage of the message of the song and the inspiration of the movie. "Morning Light" speaks about the hope of finding true joy in Him alone. "Footprints" describes the journey we all must take in life to find our right path. Walking the Camino may not be a possibility for many this 2020. I probably will never be able to do the walk myself but I'm happy enough to see stories about it and expressing that joy through creativity. Certainly, one of the best feelings in the world is seeing the ideas you have in your head finally exist in reality. And even more so if it's about something very special to you. I hope you enjoy watching this as much I did making it.

"Footprints: The Path of Your Life" is a 2016 documentary of a group of young men from Arizona taking the Way of St. James. Also known as Camino de Santiago in Spain, it is one of the famous pilgrimages of Catholics. This movie produced by Catholics in Action is currently streaming on Netflix.

Josh Garrels is one of my favorite Christian artists. "Morning Light" is from his album "Home" released April 7, 2015. Thanks to Josh for making the instrumental available. Very few artists do this and Josh's compositions are such a joy to listen to. I made the extended version specially for this video.
Words I would use to describe Josh's music: eclectic, poetic, blessed
His vastly amazing discography is at Bandcamp: https://joshgarrels.bandcamp.com

Dave Wilton (A Boy and His Kite) co-produced the song and he's another one of my favorite artists. Check out his music too: https://aboyandhiskite.bandcamp.com
