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.

Eleven Days Ago

Eleven days ago I was in Hot , Sunny, Summery Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Today I am in Cold , End of Winter, Massachusetts.

Eleven days ago, I couldn't find anything that was cool enough to wear in the hot humid summer weather.
Today I can't find a sweater and socks warm enough for this damp winter weather.

Eleven days ago, I was eating salads and making lists for packing .
Today I had hot soup and I am making lists for moving into a new home.

Eleven days ago, I said Goodbye to my friends, neighbors and the beautiful city I lived in for the past 6 years.

Today I am meeting new people, discovering new places and looking for a new place to live.

A lot can happen in  11 days.

  2. So....what houses have you seen?

  3. Rosaria, happy to meet you too !

    Raz ... we actually have only looked at houses at the offices of agents and plan on visiting Ct tomorrow ..
    We are all set to move to the temp house in a couple of days, then I can rest easy with unpacking and leaving my things around .

    We lost a day yesterday - Easter closed everything .. tomorrow we will hit the road early and hopefully see some houses.
