"Un lugar terriblemente bueno"

Mi corazón arde al ver el escenario de este video. Julio, me recuerdas de todos los momentos frustrantes, lindos, confusos, calurosos, fríos, felices, tristes y únicos que pasé en el pueblo que ahora considero parte de mi ser. Me causa una pena placentera rememorar todo que pasó en ese "rincón chaqueño". Gracias por ponerlo a música y palabras.

Subtle differences

"After awhile you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,

And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security,

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises

And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open,

With the grace of a woman,
not the grief of a child

And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After awhile you learn that even sunshine
Burns if you get too much

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth,
and you learn and learn...
With every good bye you learn."

-Veronica Shoffstall, 1971
