600km Walking Pilgrimage through Spain

Written by Denise Chng Lisan & published on September 2 2008

From the moment I discovered an ancient pilgrimage path in Spain in June last year, the attraction of walking hundreds of kilometres towards an assured destination grew on me daily. My eagerness to go on a month-long journey on foot across the steep slopes, lush valleys and forests of the Pyrenees, and through countless small towns and villages, was part of a subconscious quest to find depth and meaning in my life. At the age of 33, I was approaching – prematurely, perhaps – what seemed to be a mid-life crisis.

Letter from Quebec: Preserving Heritage

Written by Denise Chng Lisan & published on November 8 2008

'TRAVEL is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living,' wrote Miriam Beard. Life in Quebec is now my teacher, pointing out my knowledge gaps and honing my ideas of living - be it language, culture, life-skills, or the environment.

A rainbow everyday

Posted by Denise CHNG Lisan On Thursday, September 27, 2007
He gives me a rainbow everyday.

Every morning, He greets me with an unforgettable landscape. Yesterday, I saw a full spectrum rainbow across my path, right before my eyes.

This morning, for a few seconds, the morning sun broke through the dark gloomy clouds and shone on the yellow stone spanish houses on the hill. I have never seen such bright yellow against such dark blue sky. He is teaching me how colors are played on landscapes, how such impossible color combinations can exist in His paradise.

There are moments I am sure were meant just for me, as I was walking alone for miles and miles with no other in sight.

A friend told me to tell myself that He loves me, completely and deeply.
Everyday, He shows me how.
