My posts have been sparse, its not that there isn't visual inspiration here, its that I tend to forget to pull out my camera while on the gauntlet that has become my dog walk. I dodge traffic, dogs, skateboarders and irate lawn owners. For the first while I found this very gloomy. I knew that being here was the right decision but I missed my thoughtful, reflective, solitary daily walks. I was jarred; I'm still a bit jumpy. I am still gaining perspective; but I am definitely enjoying the city. I love the warm evenings, strolling down Roncezvelles in flip flops and a loose skirt, going to the Gate for a cold beer and great jazz. Sunny days, the love and support of friends.
