Flotando en el Río del Tiempo (Floating in the River of Time)

‘Floating in the river of time’ (‘Flotando en el río del tiempo’) is a meditative observation of the poetry present in the world of Pedrito – an elderly man of the mountains and relic of a time that no longer exists – while he comes to an understanding of his physical mortality and becomes aware of his spiritual immortality.
