These moments were lived on the island of Culebra at playas Tamarindo & Sardines, and the text of this post comes from "The Prophet" by Khalil Gibran. It was given to Jesús and myself by my dad; it is beautiful. Trip Theme Song 2_ Sun by Two Door Cinema Club.
InsertBut you, children of space, you restless in rest, you shall not be trapped nor tamed.
InsertYour house shall be not an anchor but a mast. It shall not be a glistening film that covers a wound, but an eyelid that guards the eye.
InsertYou shall not fold your wings that you may pass through doors, nor bend your heads that they strike not against a ceiling, nor fear to breathe lest walls should crack and fall down.
InsertYou shall not dwell in tombs made by the dead for the living. And though of magnificence and splendour, your house shall not hold your secret nor shelter your longing.
InsertFor that which is boundless in you abides in the mansion of the sky, whose door is the morning mist, and whose windows are the songs and the silences of the night.
InsertWould that I could gather your houses into my hand, and like a sower scatter them in forest and meadow. Would the valleys were your streets, and the green paths your alleys, that you might seek one another through vineyards, and come with the fragrance of the earth in your garments.
InsertInsertInsertInsertAnd the selfsame swell from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
InsertWhen you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
InsertWhen you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
InsertInsertInsertInsertWhen you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
