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.

Summer Time and the Living is Easy

Pup's park was empty, they have taken the benches away and there is now nowhere to sit and listen to the birds and admire the Ombu trees.
Of course, there is also no Pup wandering around, sniffing, admiring the big purple flowers and keeping one eye on us all the while.
So we did not linger , but walked on.
The sausage vendor at the Recoleta Cultural Center, where in my opinion, you risk becoming one of the inhabitants of the nearby Recoleta Cemetery if you eat from here.
I thought I saw a pigeon pop an Alka Seltzer when we walked by ..
You see Palm trees .. I see Parrot condos ..
These trees grow in the courtyard of the Recoleta Cultural Center, part convent , part museum, part ancient old church.
The parrots are very happy, they make a bit of noise but it seems to be fairly happy noise.
I will take the parrot noise over the traffic sounds any day.
But I am not taking myself off to the convent, so it is traffic noise for me.
It is very warm.
It is definitely Summer Time.
Time for tea. Iced tea.
