Gracias a la Vida

Preamble: Sorry for the sap.

Even the most chaotic adventures in Chile would have seemed meaningless without the people who embraced me as family and made my life there matter. The footprints I left on sand and streets may fade, but wherever the future takes me, I will carry these people in my heart. Nunca los olvidaré. Los quiero muxo.

“Gracias a la Vida que me ha dado tanto
me ha dado la marcha de mis pies cansados
con ellos anduve ciudadesy charcos,
playas y desiertos montañas y llanos
y la casa tuya, tu calle y tu patio.”

-Violeta Parra, Gracias a La Vida
