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.

Portland, Oregon

 On a hot summer day in Florida .. this waterfall in Oregon reminds me of why we fell in love with Portland  so easily.
We were living in Florida and my husband was bored to death and hating the heat and humidity.
We went to Oregon for a visit, I had friends back then, that  lived there most of their lives and always spoke so highly of the place ..
For me, it exceeded expectations.
The city was small and charming and aside from rampant crime :(  it was everything we liked.
I enjoyed walking out the door, strolling across the street to the most fabulous bookstore .. Powells.
We would walk to the Cinema.
Whole Foods was across the street, Powells book store was across the street and a park for the Pup was about 2 blocks away.
It was from Portland, that we took a trip to Buenos Aires ...  and  decided to move there and the rest is history.
It would be nice to visit Portland again.
