I wish my to-do list had only three things on it. Well, actually it does:
1. finish house
2. keep up with everything else
It's just that that first item is a huge one. Before we left we were already on it, but our time frame shrunk from "a few years" to "one month". So there's that. Also, I conveniently totally forgot I was halfway sorting through my parents' paperwork when we left.
They've always lived in big houses, but recently downsized and I told them I would take care of their archives, sort it, shred what can be tossed and store what needs to be kept. And then December happened with all the holidays and then we left and I just shoved two giant boxes of paperwork in a corner. Hmn.
Anyway, I am getting there. Slowly, since there's also the rest of the work that needs to be done (more taxes, household chores, etc.)
How about #3, you ask? Well... I try. That's where the pictures in this post com in.
This is by far my most favorite spot on Curaçao. It's not easy to reach. After a shaky ride on a dirt road, you have to walk on ancient coral (sharp and uneven) to reach the point where you can see it. But when you do... we think it's spectacular.
A local once told us: "This is where Korsou breathes". And that's exactly what it sounds and looks like.
It always gets me to breathe a bit slower too.
I needed to be reminded of this spot. Let's look at those pictures and breathe....
