My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. 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."

Monday Morning

  


The sun is not shining, it might rain. Perfect for a Monday after a 
fantastic sunny weekend. 
I mean, really, if you were going to chose how a Monday after a 
Perfect weekend would look, 
you got it here today. 
Grey clouds ... but here, in Buenos Aires, grey clouds don't 
hurt the look of the place.
They might even enhance it. 
The old buildings look fine with that grey behind them, 
the trees look even more green more tall and the flowers on 
the balcony are brighter red. 
The parrots in the park are greener. 
Nothing like a grey cloudy sky to bring out all the Moodiness in a place.


And Buenos Aires has plenty of Mood.
Friday night it was an all-night party mood .. yawn ~ but Today is a Monday Mood .. 
quiet, maybe a little slower, but withplenty of anticipation.


A whole week ahead of us with no work on Visa's to be done ! 
No holidays right now so the crowds in the stores have leveled off to normal 
and the stores are all open. 
This is Good.
I need to visit some stores and it is easier when there is no bright 
sunny day tempting us to dawdle out in the park, 
to sit and just breathe in the fresh air and store some sunshine for the 
Real days of Winter.
Winter in BA ... bright sunshine, blue skies and colder temperatures.. 
but never snow and not much rain.


And you wonder why we like it here ....


Have a Happy Monday ... go out to lunch and buy yourself a flower. 
Buy a bottle of wine and celebrate at dinner..
