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

It's hot.
Hot and humid.
I grew up in North Carolina.
It was hot and humid.
We lived in Florida once.
It was hot and humid.
Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike hot and humid weather ?

I imagine leaving the country and at the gate they ask for a reason why we are leaving.
I will just have to say , It was  too hot and humid.

Winter in Buenos Aires is perfect.
Cool, sometimes even cold .. but crisp and clear skies and the sort of brisk sunny days that you are invigorated and want to walk miles and drink lots of hot coffee or tea.

Summer in Buenos Aires starts out nice enough.
After a while, even a pretty nice winter can get  boring.
Especially if you are ready to put on new Summer clothes instead of that tired sweater that became your uniform all winter.
Everything blooms , the days are bright and sunny and dry .
The   birds are happy and so am I.

But then, as in all things, even good things, too much of it and you grow bored, you remember how cozy you were in that old sweater, you miss your Doc Martins and walking miles without getting heat stroke and you realise that even in summer, too much staying in the house, makes a person cranky .

It's hot.
And humid.
And I am cranky.
I need to find a creek somewhere to get my feet wet .. maybe I should go visit someone in North Carolina.
