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.
Alan Cohen
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

Loved Up

Our days have been spent, starting with long slow mornings getting ourselves moving, with the help of many cups of coffee .. some of us like to have pastries or something for breakfast, others like a moment of silence while her coffee does it's job .. easing slowly into a day of walking, talking, walking, sitting, planning, chatting and soaking in the pleasure of having loved ones around.

I admit that there are moments when I think to myself, Tate would be so happy.
Those are the moments when I am , myself, so happy yet have that small pocket of sadness still tucked away. And he would have been so happy, he loved his Boy. He would get lots of love and petting and kisses from his Girl and would generally be spoiled rotten, if that were possible with a dog that knew only love.

The weather has been perfect. Not too hot, although there are some new freckles on one of us and some of us have already got that sun kissed look that will make them the envy of those back in the cold Northeast USA.

We are going to museums, walking through parks, watching skateboarders on death defying hills, visiting ferias and shops and restaurants, lots of restaurants.

Tomorrow we hop on a train and go north to where we will see an antiques feria, museums, parks, beautiful homes and all on the River where it will be cool and breezy and lovely.

The days are flying by, I push away the thought of them coming to an end, saying goodbye when we only just said hello again .. What was that song ? about Time in a Bottle ?


If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing I'd like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you.

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you ...

lyrics Jim Croce
