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.

Sad Days

I am going house hunting with my daughter again today, plus a stroll through the huge mall (outdoor) and buy some goodies at Sephora. A nice full day.

I am appalled at what has (what seems like suddenly ) happened to the World .. my friend in Nice who was so happy and content being there, after working all their lives, and researching where to live when they retired, is now living in a place where tanks are protecting the citizens from madmen.

I have not heard from the friends in Provence ..

The world has suddenly gone very wrong, I hope it can be righted, quickly ... soon ... before more innocent people are allowed to be murdered by insane extremist killers.

After reading emails and the news, going to the mall, safely ( well as safe as the US can be with its own mad men with guns) , will be a welcome experience .
Mundane grocery shopping, buying mascara, things that a person doesn't think twice about doing, other than the days where you just don't feel like shopping for groceries or cooking ... now they have taken on a new meaning to me.

The appreciation of being Safe while Living in ones home.
Safe where you shop, live , dance or play.
Safe when your neighbors might be from far away places or people you have known all your life.

We grumble and complain about laws, and rules and our politicians but so far, the number of lunatics with guns still doesn't not outnumber the safe and secure lives we lead.

My heart goes out to all of those in harms way. My friends in Europe, my friend in Nice ... all of the good , hard working, peaceful people in the world who have suddenly come under attack by people who believe in Hate and Killing and Death.

Sad Days Indeed.
