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."

Plans ..

As I sit here preparing to turn off the computer , I hear the shutters in other apartments being closed.
It is a sound that I now associate with bedtime.
Great white shutters that cover the French doors and windows, locked  and keeping the inhabitants safe and  offering some protection from the bright early morning light.

We went downtown today, ( imagine Wall Street NY ... but much smaller, dirtier ) and did some boring things that one is required to do in places like that .. then home to think of what to do next.

It has been cold .. Winter is here and it feels like it, especially at night.
I had plans for tomorrow, they involved shopping.
Now I hear that the Teamsters are striking until the weekend when the Presidenta comes back from her meetings here and there.
Petrol is getting low, tempers are flaring, in one place, shots were fired.

I think this means that instead of a taxi ride to Palermo for  lunch and shopping  , the plan for tomorrow will be Museum Day.

We can start out at the Belle Artes, that will take a while.
They spent months and months renewing things, making new rooms, new exhibitions and painting , it is time we took a look at the results.

Then a few blocks away, is the Palais de Glace, an ice skating rink in the "old days", now a wonderful round building that holds art exhibits that constantly change.
It is free, the art is usually interesting at least and sometimes wonderful.

From there we can walk up the hill to the Recoleta Cultural Center and see what they have on exhibit there.
Lunch or just coffee at the Gout Cafe ( our new favorite place) and there you have the day.

Wishing you a Good Night and a Fun Friday ~
