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.

Looking Back - A Beautiful Walk

This was at the corner of our street , where we lived in Buenos Aires.
I took thousands, no, not exaggerating, thousands of photos over the 7 years that we were there.
I am considering making a book of photos.
Even if it is only for me and the family.

Every time I look at a photo, I can see it all in my minds eye.
I can hear the noise, cars honking, people walking and talking, dogs barking,
the sounds of life in Buenos Aires.
I can remember every step of the walk from our apartment, across the street, around the corner and down this street, to the end , where there is a wide flight of stairs down to the next street, and on to the supermarket.  Just going to buy groceries was a beautiful walk. Whatever the season.


  1. What a beautiful building. Buenos Aires sounds like such an alive, joyful place! I'm glad you have wonderful memories like this of a place of beauty and love. Hugs, Candice. xx

  2. Oh yes dear, do make a wonderful photo book - you will enjoy the process and then having it to hold and pages to turn. I made one recently of my trip to Budapest, Vienna and Prague last Oct. - no words, just my favorite pics, and I often just sit quietly with a cup of tea and enjoy the memories….rather than going online and looking there.

    Hugs - Mary
