My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires.. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
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.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

Sun Dappled

This is the street   we walked down to the parks in Buenos Aires.
The British Embassy to Argentina is also on this street ... so there are lots of high gates, fences and then the park. I used to daydream of living in one of these apartment buildings instead of on the big boulevard where we lived. To be able to walk out the door and cross the street and be in the park, was such a treat .. but sadly, our sweet Pup died, we stayed in the apt we bought upon arrival in Buenos Aires and we still walked down this street every day.
We had picnics in the park in the shade.
We just sat and took photos of people and a spontaneous futbol game now and then .. it was our back yard .. our green space.
Now I live in a condo with manicured lawns , its own lake and everything is clean and manicured.
But happily, behind my condo, is a forest. Unmanicured, unmown and raked and blown. A wild wood. Full of small creatures and even a large one now and then.
Yes, they do have jaguars in Florida. Yes, the do have alligators and yes a green snake did come in to say hello to the cats and I.
The snake we could deal with, the others not so much.
The wildest animal I ever saw in Buenos Aires was a drunken party goer with his friends trying to get him inside his house.
It was very funny.
I love the trees, in Buenos Aires. The same trees as in Paris ..
If you have been to both places, you would understand my conundrum ...
You can take a trip. Stay in a nice hotel. have a  driver for a day .. where would you go ?
Paris France ? Buenos Aires Argentina ?

Things I Am Thankful For

My children who remember me from time to time lol ...
My cats who don't allow me to leave their sight.
The Encouragement of Bloggers , most of whom   I have not met In Real Life but who  I feel great fondness for.
Those sweet notes and emails are so very dear to me.
This time that  I have had , living in Florida, in a beautiful place with nothing but trees and skies and clouds now and then and all sorts of birds and top that with some sweet people,  has been good for me.
I am feeling more capable, stronger, getting back a bit of my old wanderlust.

Due to where I am and what I am doing, there is not much to blog about but there will be a change and with changes come, hopefully, something interesting to talk about .. or at least a photo now and then ..

My cat sitting duties will keep me busier than usual .. but that is for 2 weeks then it will be time for my own plans and setting things into motion.

I hope you stick around, I hope you are there when things get more interesting.
Thank you for being there all this time ..
