Cuando me entrego a los caprichos de la nostalgia // When I indulge the whims of nostalgia (by Duane Michals, 2003)

“Cuando me entrego a los caprichos de la nostalgia,
y sueño despierto escenarios agridulces de lo que podría haber sido,
estos tontos fantasmas de arrepentimiento desaparecen
en la clara luz de la realidad,
y todo es como debería ser.
Nuestras pequeñas vidas son así –
Perfectas en su dolor y felicidad.”

(Extracto del libro “La casa que una vez llamé hogar”)
— Duane Michals

“When I indulge the whims of nostalgia,
and daydream bittersweet scenarios of what might have been,
thede foolish phantoms of regret vanish
in the clear light of reality,
and everything is as it should be.
Our little lives are thus –
Perfect in their pain and happiness.”

(Excerpt of the book “The house I once called home”)
— Duane Michals
