Commonplace Book #8

Caminante, son tus huellas el camino y nada más;
Caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar.
Al andar se hace el camino, y al volver la vista atrás
se ve la senda que nunca se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante no hay camino sino estelas en la mar.

Wanderer, the only way is your footsteps, there is no other.
Wanderer, there is no way, you make the way as you go.
As you go, you make the way and stopping to look behind,
You see the path that your feet will never travel again.
Wanderer, there is no way— only foam trails in the sea.
– Antonio Machado
