Walking the walk AKA Kudos to my big sis

proverbios y cantares xxix

by Antonio Machado

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

In English [less fluidity and loses something in the translation, but evocative nevertheless]:

proverbs & songs, XXIX

Wanderer, your footsteps
are the road, and nothing more;
Wanderer, we have no road,
we make the road by walking.
As you walk you make the road,
and to look back
is to see that never
can we pass this way again.
Wanderer, there is no road,
only traces in the sea.

Whether this hits you literally or figuratively, optimistically or wistfully, it embraces The Six Pillars philosophy. Take the walk. And the dog. And for hands free ease, try it with a euroleash.

And big kudos to my big sister, Amy Friedman, who walked the road among the big guns and came out a star. Check it out — WINNER FOR ORIGINAL WORK for TELL ME A STORY: WOMEN OF WONDER – and she’s a dog lover to boot (that’s her dog Soni in the picture above!)
