Soy una peregrina... l'etragere... a stranger... maybe not destined to settle down anywhere. A tanka of Wakayama Bokusui comes to my mind:
幾山河 越えさりゆかば 淋しさの 果てなむ国ぞ 独り旅ゆく
"Crossing mountains and rivers, / I make a lonesome journey... / will there
be a place where / this loneliness dissipate?"
I shall keep going on this solitary road, knowing that there are other "peregrinos" like me all over the world.
