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."

The Promise of Something Special

Another gloomy day ...  raw and damp   and not tempting us to come out and  play.
But we both grow  weary of watching movies on television, reading and playing on the computer, while we wait for a realtor to call.
What is the best thing to do on a day like today ?
Go to a Bakery.

After our trip to the Bakery, or even on the way, we can stop at the Museum, the Palais de Glace and see  the new exhibitions .
Even when the art is not that inspiring, the building that houses it is breathtaking, so it is usually just a win/win situation here.
As gloomy as the days have been lately, the flowers of Autumn are still blooming , a bright spot of color where you least expect it.
On days like this, with no set agenda in mind, no promise of something in particular, there is always the possibility of something lovely that can happy or that we can see ..
It is the Promise of Something Special that makes a person willing to leave the nice warm cozy spot they find themselves in , to venture out and see what is waiting for them.

It takes guts to venture out when it's raw and wet but you can see great things in BA. MtV
