    ITHAKA

    As you set out for Ithaka
    hope your road is a long one,
    full of adventure, full of discovery.
    Laistrygonians, Cyclops,
    angry Poseidon-don't be afraid of them:
    you'll never find the things like that on your way
    as long as you keep thoughts raised high,
    as long as a rare excitement
    stirs your spirit and your body.
    Laistrygonians, Cyclops,
    wild Poseidon-you won't encounter them
    unless you bring them along inside your soul,
    unless your soul sets them up in front of you.

    Hope your road is a long one.
    May there be many summer mornings when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you enter harbors you're seeing for the first time;
    may you stop at Phoenician trading stations
    to buy fine things,
    mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony.
    sensual perfume of every kind-
    as many sensual perfumes as you can;
    and may you visit many Egyptian cities
    to learn and go on learning from their scholars.

    Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
    Arriving there is what you're destined for.
    But don't hurry the journey at all.
    Better if it lasts for years,
    so you're old by the time you reach the island,
    wealthy with all you've gained on the way,
    not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.

    Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey.
    Without her you wouldn't have set out.
    She has nothing left to give you now.

    And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you.
    Wise as you will have become, so full of experience,
    you'll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.

    "Todo cuerpo que se mueve en o sobre la superficie de la tierra, experimenta, por causa de la rotación de la misma ,un desvío lateral a la derecha en el Hemisferio Norte y a la izquierda en el Hemisferio Sur.Este efecto se denomina "Efecto Coriolis"
    En un contínuo vagabundear el aparente desvío del camino trazado, nos conduce sin embargo, inexorablemente, a un punto ignoto del camino, Coriolis, el Lugar del Encuentro.
