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.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

When the Going Gets Tough

Spring is fighting a battle to arrive here and stay.
One day it is bright and sunny and people are wearing light sweaters and sunblock.
That night you fall asleep listening to the rain coming down.. hard.
The next day is gloomy , damp and chilly and you once again wish you had a home with a fireplace.
This is Spring.
Fine, then let's have a little taste of what Summer is like.
I mean, really, it has been so long, who remembers ??
Just for a few days, then when it chills off again, it might even be a tiny relief .. or just remind a person of how acclimated you get to the Weather where you live.
No snow, but a long chilly winter.
No snow plows but it is nicer walking in the sunshine than a gloomy windy day.
But never fear, Neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night can stay ... me from my duty ..
Didn't know that I had so much in common with the Mailman, did you ?
Not when it comes to shopping for shoes.
I just happened upon them, sitting in the window, looking hopeful that I would try them on, then bring them home with me.
I even got a discount for paying cash.
It was meant to be.
Really.
Ballet Flats with studs .. sort of Ballerina meets Heavy Metal . I Heart them.
There is another saying I like even better ...
Something about when the going gets tough ? the tough go shopping, right ?
