“En los nidos de antaño
no hay pajaros hogaño”
– from Don Quixote.
I’ve been working with this quote for many weeks now.
My favorite translation is “Don’t look for this year’s birds in last years nest”.
Or, to put it even more succinctly, “everything changes, nothing stays the same”.
We can be reminded to savor every moment of life, to let things go, to not cling to our
experiences, whether good or bad, and just let life flow.
