Caminante (Wanderer): Inspired by Antonio Machado’s poem Proverbs and Song-Verses (Proverbios y cantares XXIX) and an Autumn sunset at Bristol Beach, Massachusetts.

“Caminante, son tus huellas el camino, y nada más; caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. Al andar se hace 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… Todo pasa y todo queda, pero lo nuestro es pasar, pasar haciendo caminos, caminos sobre la mar.”

Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. Walking you make the road, and turning to look behind you see the path you never again will step upon. Wanderer, there is no road— Only wakes on the sea… All passes and all remain, but our task is to pass by, to pass by making roads, roads through the sea.

Antonio Machado – 1909

I: Nunca perseguí la gloria, ni dejar en la memoria de los hombres mi canción; yo amo los mundos sutiles, ingrávidos y gentiles como pompas de jabón. Me gusta verlos pintarse de sol y grana, volar bajo el cielo azul, temblar súbitamente y quebrarse.

IV: Nuestras horas son minutos cuando esperamos saber, y siglos cuando sabemos lo que se puede aprender.

XXIX: Caminante, son tus huellas el camino, y nada más; caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. Al andar se hace 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.

XLIV: Todo pasa y todo queda; pero lo nuestro es pasar, pasar haciendo caminos, caminos sobre la mar.

Inspiration: I saw the Autumn lights at Bristol Beach (see the photo), at the beach that day when I was painting Caminante inspired by Machado (“All passes and all remain, but our task is to pass by, to pass by making roads, roads through the sea”)
