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.

Back Streets

No matter where we walked, there was always a delight around the corner, across the street, over in the next neighborhood.
We never tired of walking and exploring and discovering.
We only took a taxi if the weather was bad, or if the destination was really too far away. But we just loved to walk .. discovering streets and shops and parks .. sights .. soaking them in.
At the time, I never thought that I was not going to be living there forever ... or at least for many many years.
I enjoyed the discoveries of streets and parks that we never knew about ..
This photo was taken on one of those walks .. on a little back street, where the driveways and garages were, the next street was where the front doors were .. but even a back street had its beauty.

  1. Isn't it funny how life takes us places we do not plan and, perhaps, don't really want to go. I'm learning to love it anyways but it has been such a struggle to give up my life as I had planned.
