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.

Rain, Snow and sleet.
In  the 30's ...
I am in Florida !!!!

I am surrounded by napping cats ... smart babies.

I am on the lookout for the little homeless cat that I let out last night while it was frantic to be let out ..  I will let it back in and feed it and give it a warm bed again .. even if it thinks it is trapped, better to be comfortable, fed ,warm and trapped,  than out in those freezing cold wet woods.

Little cats like that ... make me hate humans. You know what I mean.

So I will tell you a story on a rainy wet day ..

We had just moved in to our new home in Buenos Aires and they had a sudden big storm.
Argentine storms are not like NY storms .. or even Florida storms.
There is much thunder, lightening that is fabulous to see and torrential rains where the streets look like rushing rivers and everyone huddles in a doorway or says To Hell With It and tries to jump the raging torrent of a curb and lands up to their ankles in rushing water ... slopping along down the sidewalk with an umbrella that has blown inside out ... water pouring out of drains and off of the awnings over your head.
We got home from that walk, soaked, chilled and with a dog that needed an hour long  blowout with towels and hair dryer.

The lesson we learned ....... Stay Inside until it stops raining if at all possible.
Those sorts of rains are usually not long lived and there is no shortage of lovely cafes and little places to have tea/coffee/sandwich/medialunas and chat ...
There is no one to hurry you along, chat for hours if you wish, just keep ordering that food and/or drink.

Nice memories on a wet, windy and cold Winter Day in Jacksonville Florida, USA.
