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.

Happily Insane

“I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.”
Edgar Allan Poe

When I read this, this morning, I knew it was me.
Yes, me .
Right now I have had a blissfully long spell of being hopelessly insane and only rare moments of sanity which are so brief, they are not that horrible.

It all started when .... Wow ... I guess you could say It all started when I was a 19 year old arriving in New York City and met my soon to be husband.
Sanity went right out the window and rarely made any appearances since.

Look at us !
Homes here and homes there, travels everywhere.
Visits to far off places for celebrations of birthdays and anniversaries... all leading to deciding after one such trip ... to live in Argentina.

Now you tell me ... was that Insane ?
So far, there has been nothing horrible about it.
Pup loved it.
Pup helped me love it more.
My husband loves everything about it from the beginning ..

I daydream of moving to Paris , I daydream of moving to NY and living in the woods with autumn leaves and apple picking and concerts outdoors on summer nights.

But then ... that might mean we would have to leave here ... would that be horrible ?
Sane ?
Insanity ?


  1. There is beauty everywhere, my friend.

    The place to be is where you are. :-)


  2. I agree with Pearl...home is where the heart is. And if you're not happy inside, it doesn't matter where you live. I think sometimes we think we must be insane for making some of the choices we do but that is what makes it all worth living.

  3. In other words, we are Happily Insane :)
    * One of my favorite quotes... "Wherever you go, There you are ! "

  4. I often think,
    'anywher but here'.
    But if I'm there,
    would I really like the beer?

    Isn't it strange that insanity only afflicts the sane?

  5. I know, Symdaddy, I have often pondered this question .. But the good news is , they have all kinds of good beer here :)

  6. Wow!! It's a wonderful image.
