Y que pequeños nos verá…

Y que pequeños nos verán,
Los que no volaron nunca.

(And they will see us so small,
those who never flew.)

I’ve never been one to find learning a language easy, but it’s moments like this that make it worthwhile. At the minutes, I am studying Spanish in school, and it definitely hasn’t been easy by any means to get as far as I have. But then, when I stop the grammar sheets, and the textbook exercises, and the seemingly endless essays, and go to listen to Spanish music or watch an amazing films (I recommend Espinazo del Diablo especially), and realise that I can understand it without subtitles as an intermediary-that is an amazing moment. And really, it’s why I keep studying.

This particular quote is from a song called Cometas por el Cielo (Kites in the Sky), by La Oreja de Van Gogh (Van Gogh’s Ear). They’re not perhaps the highest rated band in Spain, but I’m not Spanish, so I don’t mind.
