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

Where I live ...

We slept late and recovered from the trauma of having gotten up so early yesterday, with the additional strain of still staying up past midnight .. feeling slightly lazy we stayed around the house a while, then took a couple of trips to various markets and brought in foods to keep us until we feel like leaving the house again. ( Tomorrow).
I thought I would share some photos ( some have already been posted but hey, they are good enough to look at twice !) You can see what it is like where I live. My neighborhood and those where we are often found, browsing, shopping, window licking and generally wandering and enjoying the town.
This is the Biblioteca Nacional .. you can also have lunch in a cafe up high overlooking the park around the library, you can listen to concerts on weekend nights.
This is a statue in our neighborhood. It is close by the Faculty of Rights building, I have no idea who they are. They are Indians and it most likely has something to do with Indians who may have lived here long ago? It is a wonderful sculpture, very life-like.
A street in Palermo. Typical street in Palermo. Great, isn't it ?
Shops in Palermo Soho. Tons of character and mighty fine shopping.
Looking down at the Gardens of the Hyatt Hotel Palacio Duhau . The original building was the French Palacio Duhua, built in 1932. We had tea one afternoon with a friend. It was wonderful .
More of the incredible buildings in the city.
And this is Pup, pre-haircut, hanging out in the Belle Artes Museum Park , admiring what he calls Art Schmart

Nice, isn't it ? You can see why we decided to move here after a 2 week visit, right ? When I start getting homesick, I think of these places and the people here and remember what made us want to move here. And I am glad we did it .


  1. What a lovely way to spend a Saturday. ArtSchmart...ah, poodle critique!

  2. Oh you know Poodles, always airing their opinions ~

  3. Beautiful places - even the Pup and the ArtSchmart - the hotel's gardens look so inviting... like you can just lie down on that grass... and unlike here, not be eaten alive by fire ants.


Thank you for your comments.... Trolls are being dealt with ... be patient if your comment does not show up immediately. Thanks !!
