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."

My Favorite Time of Year

I have lived in New York since I was 20 years old. 
Of course, as some of you know, I have lived elsewhere during those 20 years but we come back to New York eventually.
I miss Buenos Aires. 
I miss the people and the place and the sound and just the familiarity of it all.
But here I am , in a familiar place that is a bit unfamiliar still but I / we are finding our way around and exploring more since the house is pretty much finished... decorating / rehab-wise.
And Perfect timing ! Fall is in the air and being my favorite time of year, we get to take long drives and explore our new home area, while leaf peeping , pumpkin buying, mum buying and getting lost and discovering new towns and cafes.
We must have our cafes !
My heart is happy with the amazing amount of perfectly restored very old homes everywhere. 
Some are now libraries, museums and some are homes. 
Full of history and beauty. A perfect combination.
What with the holidays coming, the shops are full of the seasons decorations.
This the home of  President Martin Van Buren   , near where we live.
It is good to have a new place to explore. And a familiar place to live.
Even if I do miss Buenos Aires.
