My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
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.

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

June 1st

It is Winter here.
There is no getting around it now, it is cold out.
Coats and gloves are being worn.
Socks are a must with boots. Walking on cold sidewalks and pavement , the chill starts at the feet and works it's way up to your brain, where you suddenly are reminded that hot tea, scones and a nap are necessary.
Winter has possibilities of being fattening.

Luckily here, winter is usually bright and sunny.
If you are dressed right, you can still take long walks and visit other neighbourhoods and shop and walk and shop and .... shop.
All sorts of things are going on in Argentina right now, Winter is the least of the worries at the moment.
The government is making everyone unhappy.
Last night the people of the city , at a certain hour, all went out on their terraces, their balconies, into the street and banged on pots.
Loud and constant and long, I am not sure how long it went on but they meant business, they meant for that man who works for the government who lives on our block and all those others who live in this city, to know , They are not happy.
We are not that happy either.
But it is winter, the sun is out and  Snow White  is waiting ..
