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.

From the US... to BA.... to Japan ...

Today we spent about an hour at the United States Embassy ... we were on US soil, right here in Buenos Aires.
Mostly it looked like a concrete bunker in Argentina but what do I know. The people were very pleasant and we got what we needed quickly and with a smile. I was glad to be out of there, as it was another beautiful day and sitting in a government building belonging to any country on a beautiful day is a waste of a beautiful day.

By the time we got home and finished some errands, most of the beautiful day was zooming by ... so we took Pup to the park and     enjoyed the warm sun on our faces.

Pup was one of the few creatures in the park with energy today. I wanted to doze in the sun, I think my husband did too and then someone did ... I especially liked the fact that his pup was napping also..

There is going to be a celebration at the Japanese Gardens. We have to go .
There will be   Taiko Drummers ! 

We saw them in Portland Oregon, our son got to see them  ( the real ones) , in Japan, on the island where they live .. imagine, on the beach, at night, listening to those drums .. wow !

                                                    This means HAPPINESS

I remember when the Jardín Japonés opened up in BA, such a beautiful place! I remember the grown ups saying:"We should give the Japanese all Palermo...they will make it gorgeous!"
I didn't have the opportunity to take the family there yet, but we will visit soon...yeah!!

Love the park bench sleeper with pup. Too funny! Such perfect days after the hellishly hot summer. Lovely!

When my son and I saw the Taiko drummers in London, they were phenomenal.... the audience did not want to let them finish... regardless of the sheer "visible" exhaustion of the performers... such a fun and wonderful show to see :) Love the photo of the napper....

Thank you Bri :)
What fun to see the Taiko in London .. I bet your son wanted to be a drummer after he saw them.
