Walking in Mind

A Trail of Thoughts

Seeing, Feeling, Telling

3 Comments

1. In Catalan

Entre marges i vinyes

hi ha un camí

que em porta

a la gratitud de viure.

 

2. Landschap

 

3. En anglès

A spring afternoon,

between stone wall and vines,

I stumble across

the gratitude

for what is,

for a place

becoming home.

 

4. What do you see, what do you feel, in the language(s) you inhabit?

 

5. The invitation of the poet, Neruda:

que no nos llenemos la boca […] con tanto tuyo y tanto mío

…let us not fill our mouths […] with so much of yours and mine

 

6. Rebel against hate, rebel against indifference, rebel against those who would divide us.

Author: Alan Nance

Old bones creak along the trail. Words often elude me at my desk. I can't go on. I'll go on.
