We were learning about this word while sharing about our favorite place. One of us spoke about jumping from a cliff which sparked a discussion the difference between “el precipicio” (slightly cantilevered cliff) and “acantilado” (vertical cliff). It was an interesting discovery and discussion. We learn something new everyday.
I decided to document the vocabulary “el precipicio” into my little sketchbook. While doing so, out of curiousity, I discovered this profound quote by a Romanian philosopher, poet, playwright and Novelist — Lucian Blaga. which I admittedly spent some time thinking about it. In this case, I believe the poet is trying to tell the reader that one should not easily give up on fate. We all have the power to change our fate. The end starts when we start to give up.
