El Camino | Word Meditations 90/366

“Caminante, no hay camino
se hace camino al andar.”

-Antonio Machado

“Traveler, there’s no path
the path is made through walking.”

There’s no path, there are no paths —
 only dreams and destinations, 
if one shall dare to see so far.
To see far out beyond what your eyes perceive.
To dream out loud beyond what reason thinks.
To trust yourself that there is — there — the way…
if you’ll only make it. 
Traveler there are no paths.
You’re the path and the map and the compass all at once. 
Traveler, walk you must.
