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.

Sunday, February 24, 2013


Sundays here are like Sundays there, wherever you are, wherever I used to be.
You sleep late, move slowly, read the Times ( online) and basically drink too much coffee and don't get dressed until around noon.
I like Sundays.

It is still pretty warm here.
Last night was an outstanding, sometimes a little scary thunderstorm.
The sky was lighting up with lightening .. sort of behind the clouds ... then in addition to that, a huge bolt of lightning would come down and immediately after , there would be an eardrum breaking, loud crash of thunder then more thunder ... rumbling and rumbling.

Even when you knew it was coming, it made you jump.

OK .. it made me jump.

It was nice to go to bed to the sound of rain and no air conditioning.
For about 10 minutes.
Then the people in the building behind our building had a party, it started after 1:00 am . .  windows open, music really loud and so were they.

We turned the a/c on so we didn't have to hear them .. it got quite cold in our bedroom last night.

Today is glorious .. blue blue skies, white puffy clouds, wind that cools you off just when you need it.

We walked for miles, I took a few hundred ( or so it seems) photos and now we are home.
All walked out.

Tonight we will watch  whatever television shows there are on Sunday nights in the UK.
Or a movie if we can find it.
We will loll around .
I love lolling.
I do it very well also.
And I know that our lolling days are soon going to be over.

So I will loll while I can.

I hope your Sunday is peaceful, fun, happy and whatever else you want it to be ..
Tell me about it. Busy ? Slothful ? Fun and games ? Sleep ? Lolling around ?
