Eso es alcanzar lo más alto,
lo que tal vez nos dará el Cielo:
no admiraciones ni victorias
sino sencillamente ser admitidos
como parte de una Realidad innegable,
como las piedras y los árboles.
Jorge Luis Borges
This is the best that can happen,
What heaven perhaps will grant us:
Not to be wondered at or required
But simply to be let in
As part of an undeniable Reality,
Like stones of the road, like trees.

They also gave me this t-shirt which I can see myself wearing while I'm trying to hitch a ride on some central american highway:
It's a poem by Argentine writer and philosopher Jorge Luis Borges and in case you can't read it, it says:
Well, I need to get my house packed so I guess that is enough stalling for today. I've got the next three days to pack everything and bring it to mom and dad's where we'll be having a garage sale on Thursday and Friday and getting rid of almost everything. Then is Thanksgiving weekend, and I leave the following Sunday. Like I said, this leaving seems to really be speeding up.
