He ido a caminar por las playas de la bahía de Chesapeake. Y esa caminata me ha hecho pensar en algunas cosas: la arena escurriéndose entre las manos, ¿estuvo alguna vez en el fondo del mar? ¿Y qué será de esa luna ensangrentada en el horizonte, que casi besa tierra firme, cuando la Vía Láctea se haya ido para siempre? Lo único permanente es el movimiento. Y tú. I´ve gone walking on the beaches of the Chesapeake. That walk has made me think of a few things: the sand sifting through one’s hands, was it ever at the bottom of the sea? And what will become of that bloody moon on the horizon, almost kissing solid ground, when the Milky Way has gone forever? The only permanent is the movement. And yourself.
