Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My scrip of joy, immortal diet,
My bottle of Salvation,
My gown of glory, hope’s true gage;
And then I take my pilgrimage.

Sir Walter Raleigh

Pilgrims of old would carry with them a leather scrip, or satchel, which held everything they needed for the journey.

I’m gathering here some treasures to help us on our path through the later part of life. The advantage of a virtual scrip is that, like Hermione Grainger’s beaded handbag in Harry Potter, we can apply an undetectable extension charm so it can hold as much as we like.

I’ll add to this hoard whenever I find new riches, meanwhile, please do suggest your favourites in the comments. Click the links below to find out what’s in our scrip:

    Fabulous, Tess! All of it!
    I very much like the Raleigh’s quote: the scallop-shell never fails to take me back on the path to Santiago :-)
    What a great concept you have going here. I just love it!
