About the editor and author
First of all, I am a writer. Above all else. Those of you who have known me for many years know that every conversation, interaction, fuck, hug, journey, adventure, discussion, fiddle, fornication, dive, concert, kiss, and so forth I engage in ultimately gets written down somewhere. Not always exactly as it happened, but always swallowed up and redistributed elsewhere in my imagination and onto the (cyber) page.
I am new to the diving world. I started back April 2019, thinking I would breeze through my PADI Open Water certification. Alas, that is not how the whole escapade went down. Now, finally having completed this certification, I marvel at the intensity of my initial panic. But I won’t get too confident just yet – so much more to learn, so many more certifications to achieve, so much ocean to cover.
For over two years I have been planning to move the Caribbean. I have chosen Curacao as my rock for myriad reasons you will learn about over time. So many logistics to consider…should I sell my house or rent it out while I am away, how will I work and earn money there, what are the immigration requirements, what about health insurance, what about my car, what about my dog, what about my career, should I move there now or just buy an investment property, and on and on.
This blog is about my adventures, as an American woman from the South, learning to dive, being single, the pursuit of joy and passion, and moving to Curacao. I will use this blog to retrace the languid luxurious days of my past and ponder that kaleidoscopic future I dream of daily. Some of you are interested in only the sex parts. Some the diving. Some on how to move to a Caribbean island. And some of you…well, only you know why you are here. Why are you here? Admit your reasons only to yourself. Or to me, if you care to. I never name names, darling. Bad juju.
