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.

April 1st

April Fool's Day.
I vaguely remember when that meant something, when friends played tricks, when someone would fool me or give it a good try.
All that has changed now, we live in a land where the holidays are just not the same. Some are ignored, some are mentioned and then there are some that drift by with hardly a thought, where back where we come from, they would be celebrating for weeks! months !
Valentines is noticed by a Heart in the window of a candle shop.
April Fools Day ... most likely there will be no fooling me today. I hardy know any Fools anymore !
We are going to the cinema.
Then we will take Pup to the Vet for his biopsy.
My sincerest wish is that the vet will say he needs a particular antibiotic and perhaps at worst, removal of the Thing .. nothing worse. Should I believe her if she says something worse ? Should I consider it an April Fool's joke? or would that make me an April Fool ?
The sun is shining, I am not feeling sick.
Pup looks beautiful and smells like , well, not a flower but a cleaner, softer than soft dog. I will take what I can get. No Fooling required.


  1. Hi Candice! Our April Fool's Day is on December 28th, "Dia de los Santos Inocentes". It is exactly the same, only that it is celebrated on another day. I'll make a point to fool you on Dec. 28 so you don't miss your fool's day!
    All the best for Pup today, I'm sure he will be ok!

  2. Thank you ! I will write it in my calendar so I don't miss it next year :)
