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.

Yo quiero Buenos Aires ~

  My good friend is going to Italy. She is renting a villa and she will eat and drink and sight-see and do all the things she has on her countless lists and in the books that she has studied and enjoyed for months... perhaps years. She will enjoy the food, the wine and certainly the gelato. 
I can see her in a little sports car, top down, or wait ! on a Vespa, speeding along a winding road in Tuscany .. 

I wanna go too !!!!

  My good friend in California is going to Venice. He is renting an apartment inches away from the canal .. or overlooking a piazza  ... He will eat himself silly and walk and take gondolas and he will sleep like a baby full of gelato and he will shop, did I mention shopping?
I wanna go too ....

Oh .. wait a minute ... I did go to a place that was foreign and everyone spoke another language and the people laugh and drink wine and sit in cafes all the time and they love gelato !! 

They ride Vespas and all sorts of motor bikes and small cars and they like to honk too !

They love Pasta and Pizza and Limoncello .. and babies and pups.

Yo quiero Buenos Aires ..
