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.

London Calling

You may blame this post on Pearl. and the Clash.

A pretty nice day so far. The Sun is sort of shining through volcanic ash or just clouds, I can't tell !
Plenty of walking and photo taking, dog playing and more walking.
A lovely lunch at the cafe ... cafe con leche con tart de manzana ... the coffee is addictive and the tart with the apples and crumble topping makes me happy. And you know what They say... Whatever makes you happy ~ I will have it again tomorrow.
The Photo exhibit was closed for a huge class of noisy students, have to go back .. Doisneau needs plenty of time and quiet to be appreciated.
The Vet wasn't in !! We have to go back !! Pup didn't mind. I just want to get this over with.

My mind is elsewhere .. London , Paris .... London is calling ...


  1. It's always better someplace far away. They used that song in my favorite movie, Billy Elliot MtV

  2. The Clash?

    As an ex punk rocker my sweetie probably knows all the words to any Clash song - I know most of the words to London Calling but have to mumble some parts :)

    Pup would cover his ears if he heard me singing!

  3. Anony, "home" is far away :)
    Alyson .. music always reminds me of a place or time, this just puts me in London .. more than a few years back. You will have to test Pup and see if he covers his ears ..

  4. That is my favourite song from my high school years.

  5. Razmataz, doesn't it take you back ?! :)

  6. The Clash qualify as demi-gods.

    Glad I inspire you, sweetheart. Enjoying your autumn? Still waiting for summer here -- outside of a brutal 103 degree day a week ago, we've been a good 15 degrees below normal every other day.

    As my grandma would say, "well, I'll be..."
