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.

Enjoying every minute.

I should create a book of photos of just the skies in Buenos Aires.
I never get tired of looking at and photographing the skies here.
I can be found most days, at some time of the day, with the camera to my eye, looking straight up.
I am sure there are people passing by, shaking their heads, figuring I am just another one of those dotty women wandering around ..
The weather is spectacular these past weeks, with chilly nights that require comforters and sometimes even heat has to be turned on to take the chill off rooms with such high ceilings.
The trees still have most of their leaves and some are golden and some dappled brown and gold and green .. flowers are blooming.
Seems Spring and Fall is flower blooming time here.. just another part of the enchantment of Buenos Aires.
We have been taking a lot of long walks and or short walks with a long time spent on a bench .. watching Pup enjoy the fresh air or just watching people .

There have been a few sightings of mimes and acrobats lately as well as a few musicians in the parks.
Weekends when the Feria sets up, there is always some sort of entertainment. Since we live close to it all, we can't help but see them every time we go out.
I still think it would be a hoot if I put a red clown nose on Pup and a ruffled collar around his neck, or let him wear one of his favorite tee shirts and let him just walk through the park .. wonder how much money he would make ~

Holidays are approaching.
Monday, the Obelisk on 9 de Julio will be 75 years old.
A fabulous landmark, such a wonderful sight especially in the middle of that vast fantastic street ..
There will be a celebration, there will be Tango in the streets.

It is a lovely time to be here .. but actually, if we stop and think about it, just about every minute so far has been a lovely time to be here.

I have been busy ... work and looking after my boy Sym ... so I've been playing 'catch-up' this morning.
I was so sorry to read about Pup's troubles.
I know exactly how you feel. Although Sym is now in full remission (lymphoma) I still worry about him (treatment causes even more troubles for him) and treasure every moment of every walk, playing fetch or when he comes for an upside down cuddle on the sofa.

All fingers and paws here are crossed for him!

Love your photo's by the way and would love to see Pup in his clown make-up.

the photo is amazing...where's the traffic? I don't think I was ever on a BsAs street without a million cars.
I hope you and Pup are savoring every minute of your beautiful day.

Kelly, I will see what I can do with the dressing up thing. I think we will have to go with the same nose though...I am sure he won't allow a red one .

Thank you Symdaddy, I have been reading your blog, fingers and paws crossed for you and Sym too.

Fay, the sky is grey and rainy this morning, which is pretty in its way too. Thank you.

Anony, that photo had to be taken at dawn .. I agree, there are always cars there ! Thank you, we woke up to a smiling Pup who wanted to play tug with his blanket.
