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.
Alan Cohen

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Happy January 1, 2012.

Looks kind of odd, doesn't it ?
Like the first line in a Science Fiction movie.. or how about this ..
Hello from Buenos Aires, Argentina, January 1, 2012 ..

I hope everyone had a nice, fun, New Years Eve.
We had an excellent, quiet New Years Eve, with a delicious dinner and an after- dinner walk through empty quiet streets.
It reminded me of that movie where the man and his dog are the only ones left in the World .. silent streets, empty of people , no cars .. zombies ..
When we got home, we had a wonderful chat with loved ones via iChat ( I totally heart Apple) and as we were saying goodbye, all Hell broke loose outside.

The sort shot off of the top of tall buildings by the residents.
Loud, exciting, scary and pretty .. all around us, over our heads, past our building, over our building, thankfully, not straight at our building.
I was happy we have iron shutters.. they might have come in handy.

Today we woke to a silent city, no cars again, no people, nada.
It is very warm and sunny, we decided to go for a walk.
The other 10 people left in Buenos Aires came out and walked and sat in the park too.

I took the camera, I enjoyed being able to stand in the middle of a usually jammed busy street and take a photo, down the street, without a car in sight.

I hope your New Years Eve was at least as Fun, Exciting, full of Love ..
I hope your New Year is even more Fun, Exciting and full of Love.
