This is a poem that was written for me by Maria Helena. She had set up a chair, a table and a typewriter on a street corner during the El Rastro flea market in Madrid. You gave her a subject and she wrote you a poem. It was such a beautiful thing to do, she wasn’t asking for any money, she just wanted to share her gift of beautiful words. I asked her to write me a poem about Love and Travel.
Here is the translation. It works better in Spanish I think.
‘It doesn’t matter if you choose to travel by
it does not matter because travel
is something else
because feeling free
is knowing you can go anywhere
it is to know the love of your life
and to deliver your soul
to do what you really like
but always be you”
