I love clouds and sky, they are just as majestic as the ocean and they are always above you even when the ocean is far away. I find peace in by looking at the sky, I find the NOW when I watch the clouds or stars.
They say that the only thing that stays the same is that everything changes.
This week, everything has changed.
My husband said that we could move to Australia.
I have been thinking, planning, plotting and investigating this very move for 4 years now.
I realized today when I spoke to him that, I knew what it looks like by watching every National Geographic show and Crocodile Hunter episode, that my favorite movies as a teenager were "The man from Snowy River and Quigley Down Under". I have watched every Youtube video on Australia. I tried to win a trip for 2 to Oz last year by entering 100 times on an online wine tourism promotion. My friend tried to get me in on that trip Oprah did last year to Oz. Neither one happened.
I know what they eat, how they talk, all of their holidays and traditions. I find myself stalking real estate in South Australia bi-weekly. I know what it sounds like and have researched it's climate and job openings, how to apply for a visa, got moving quotes and found out if we could bring our cats.
The one thing I wasn't sure about Australia was the way it smelled.
But then I told my husband that, yes I did know how it smelled because Oz is with me everyday in my flower shop. I always have eucalyptus and wax flower, soon I will have lepto and acacia too.
Maybe I have been obsessed or maybe I am just
a Mom who is trying to make sure she gets her offspring to a safe place were he can flourish.
Australia has been singing me to it for 4 years now and finally my other half is in full support.
A relative of mine told me once that I inherited the Pioneer Gene. My Great Grandparents migrated from Germany to the US, what is so crazy about me wanting to migrate Down Under?....... Nothing.
This would be a good time for me to announce that if there is anyone in the Brisbane or Adelaide area that would like to sponsor me or my strapping husband, I can be reached by email: HeidiJaster@yahoo.com
This sounds like prostitution, but I promise it is not, I am not that kind of Heidi.
Thanks for sticking with me all of these years. I am thinking of documenting my journey through this blog.
I am wondering what you all think of that?
OMG!!! I can't believe this is finally going to happen.
I can't wait to see the sky, clouds and ocean in Oz.
