My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Smile



Basically, I am a happy person.
I don't walk around grinning like an idiot but I have a smile handy when needed.
You could say that I have a ready smile.
If I see a baby, I smile.
If I see the very old woman with the out-of-it's-mind-puppy on a leash, I smile, I smile at the produce boys, I smile at the lady in the bakery, I smile at people who smile at me and especially those who smile at Pup.
I smile at the car that actually stops and let's us cross the street and sometimes I smile at the Porters who all say Buen dia and smile at me.

So I think I have the Smile thing covered.
How about you ?

  1. Hello Candice:
    What an excellent philosophy for life and one which we should all try to adopt. After all, one catches more flies with honey than one does with vinegar.

  2. I have to do a close-mouthed smile for the duration of the braces. I'm sure it looks awkward.
