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

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Life is Wonderful..
The holidays can make things tough for some people, some are homesick , some miss family far away .. Remembering that you are well and that everyone you love is well can help.
But wherever you are, whatever you are doing, sometimes the best way to remind yourself of how wonderful life can be, is to take a walk. Down a country road, down a city sidewalk, through a meadow, through the woods, along a beach, through the neighborhood.
At this time of year, the signs of the season are there to be enjoyed , which can cheer a person up. ( hopefully) .. I mean really, it you don't get a kick out of the house on the block that is totally , completely covered in colored lights, with reindeer, sleds and inflated Santas on the lawn, then I am gonna call you Scrooge.
OK, I will agree with you too, there is such a thing as Too Many Decorations. Ask Clark Griswald.
Today we took a walk.
One of us is still not feeling 100 % well and the other is fighting off the germs from , well , me.
Pup feels good though.. as you will see. He met a new friend today in the park.
A Pup look-alike!

We saw a side to Pup that has not been shown lately , bouncing , butt in the air, Playful Pup .. no sign of being Old and Tired Pup.
It was worth going out in the chilly wind to see that.
The Ferias are in full swing.. Shoppers are crowding the parks, entertainment is everywhere, from drummers to singers to jugglers and more.
We walked across the park to the bridge that takes you to the Law School .. a Most Impressive Building !
The gardens in the park on the way .. Christmas and flowers are blooming everywhere.
But at home there are more signs of the Season, more Christmas Cheer.

Remember .......Life is Wonderful ~
