about

This song is dedicated to the months by the sea in San Juan, Borikén, when Music & the Earth transformed from a dream into a reality... and even more so, to the years of light and love that have followed. Its title is inspired by a poem by Antonio Machado: "Caminante, son tus huellas el camino y nada más / Caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. / Al andar se hace el camino, y al volver la vista atrás / se ve la senda que nunca / se ha de volver a pisar / Caminante, no hay camino, sino estelas en la mar."

“Estelas” is also song about moving on, in the company of the sea. The lyrics acknowledge the tender and mysterious nature of human love—the way in which, even after connections between people fade, that love still remains in the hearts of those involved. It continues to animate one’s journey through life, which is also nourished and supported by the nature which surrounds us. The lyrics were inspired in part by a thought by Rumi: that in “the garden of mystic lovers,” distinctions fade away. Love can exist between humans, but it can also resonate and be stewarded by the wider ecosystems within which we live.

lyrics

Hemos oído
Que cuando se vaya un amor
La experiencia del infinito
Da lugar al dolor

Y quizás es así,
Pero no será para siempre
Y este colibrí
Ahora por fin entiende

Que la passeggiata que comenzamos
Continúa hasta hoy
Y los sueños que diseñamos
Forman parte de quién soy

Y siento el aliento del mar
Y sin prisa, con una sonrisa
Empiezo a caminar

No sé adónde fuiste
No sé dónde ahora estás
Pero ya no estoy tan triste
Ya tú lo verás

Que la passeggiata que comenzamos
Continúa hasta hoy
Y los sueños que diseñamos
Forman parte de quién soy

Y siento el aliento del mar
Y sin prisa, con una sonrisa
Empiezo a caminar
