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.

The Little Black Snake

I walk to the mailboxes each day and back, with the heat and humidity today I was glad it was not a long walk.
The gardeners are here today .. mowing, trimming, sculpting .. very nice and very polite and cheerful all the time.

I always say hello to them , instead of pretending they are not there like I have seen some people do .. so now they say hello Signora when they see me.
Today they were standing by some shrubs that were being trimmed and just staring at the shrub.
I had to walk past them anyway, so I said What ? is something wrong ?
And one of the men just pointed at the shrub .... and there it was .. it's little "neck" sticking out, its little bitty head looking .. staring .. is it safe to come out ? What are these humans doing to my hiding place ?? My Gosh they are ugly, those humans !

He was quite small and not scary looking , kind of cute if you really want to know.

A little Black Snake.

So that is one black snake, one armadillo , one long garden snake and a lot of fireflies that I have seen so far, living here.
Thankfully, no alligators. oy.

Now I am safe inside .. with the craziest of creatures ...  cats...2 young,  1 old .. watch out for them !
