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.

Look Forward

I had a dream last night.
In that dream, I had a dog.
He looked an awful lot like my dog Tate, "Pup" ... a large brown  Standard Poodle.
He was just walking on the street, I called his name, he ran right to me and walked beside me.
He was my Good Boy.

I hated waking up this morning.
I have dreamt of people that I have lost, the same feeling is there upon awakening ... disappointment .. a fresh feeling of loss and a bit of grief.. it was just a dream.

I am alone too much ... with cats. Who should be able to speak English soon.
Or I will be speaking Cat. I just wish they were like dogs, that we could go outside together, take a walk, do something a bit more than lie on the sofa/bed/floor and purr.
Well, I don't purr ... not yet.

I keep making plans. Looking Forward. Figuring things out .. preparing in my mind before I start preparing in "real life" ... reality ... ugh.

Today I might take my banker's advice ... I might go shopping.
Not online as usual .. although that is a possibility but I might find a shop nearby and get something new ... to wear around the house for the cats to see.


  1. I know those dreams! Timber is sometimes so real it is hard to wake up and find him gone again.

    Go spend some money! It sounds like your bank lady was encouraging and positive.
    When you have finished plotting and make you move think about a dog. They are, as you know, great ice breakers, and I am sure one would help you settle in where ever you land up.
    And don't worry about the cats - they will soon show a dog who's boss!

  2. heti, it is so sad, to wake up and realize it was a dream :(
    I was thinking about the spending money thing lol but then I got bogged down in what to spend it on.
    shopping is always fun but then ... so is travel . I can shop somewhere other than in Florida .. yeah ....

  3. That is a pretty neighborhood in your photo. Is that where you live now? I used to have dreams like that about my mother, we would be happy and then I would be so sad when I woke up and realized it was just a dream. I thought my cat would never accept a dog but she did and they live together harmoniously.

  4. No, Terra, that photo is a street in Buenos Aires, I live in Florida at the moment in a modern posh townhouse .. which just makes me miss my home in BA :)
