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."

After We Leave

Will someone watch out for the little dove in her nest outside the living room window ?

Will our neighbour lady next door be treated gently and helpfully?

Will someone nag the Porter to keep the garden watered because my Plants Are Thirsty !! ?

Will the Porters who say hello to us every time we walk down the street, no matter how many times a day we pass them , with Pup and now without, notice our absence ?

Will the boys at the Green Market wonder why we aren't buying any more tomatoes and cherries ?

Will the Pizzeria people think we have found another pizza we like better ?

Will the ladies at the bakery start to  think we left them for   better scones ?

Will the girls at L'epi, the French bakery, wonder why we have quit eating our pan queso ?

Will the Flower man on the corner come back in the Autumn and wonder where we are ? Will he  miss kissing us every time we cross the street . (Just between you and I, I don't think that is something my husband is going to miss)

Will the girls at Zara at Paseo Alcorte wonder where I am, I haven't gone this long without dropping in and picking something up .

Will the girls at the little shoe shop on Vicente Lopez miss my pathetic jokes while trying on shoes and wonder if I have found a new shoe shop ?

Will the lady that checks us out at the Disco market while beaming at my husband when he gives her the change she wants , wonder where we are ?

Will the people at the EST Coffee miss French roasting our coffee and wonder if we have left them for better coffee ?
(no one in their right mind would do that )

Will the Angels in the park miss us ? I know they already miss Pup.

Will I miss them all as much as I think I will ?
