Colorado Life

Colorado is a nice place to live. We will always be tied to Colorado, as we are Colorado natives. We have nothing against Colorado except maybe the weather sometimes. I have heard it said, and believe it to be true, that Colorado has two seasons: Snow and Road Construction.

We also have another Colorado saying that goes something like this: If you don’t like the weather, just wait and it will change. That is also very true because I have witnessed 70 degree weather days turn into 3 day-long blizzards with 20 inches of snow in a matter of hours. It is so unpredictable I am sure that being a weatherman here is a karmic torture for past-lives wrong-doing. A recent tornado in this area was not even identified until about 2 hours before it hit.

Overall, however, Colorado is a nice place to live. We have beautiful mountains, and the summers are just gorgeous. Of course there’s snowboarding and skiing in the mountains in the winter and in the summer there are mountains to climb, rivers to raft and lots of bike trails everywhere. Colorado is a healthier, slimmer area than most any other state in the nation, and we have some of the best drivers. Education and employment is decent and most people are happy to live in Colorado. And we are too! It’s just that we are ready for an adventure.

If we live until we are 99, we figure we will have given at least a third of our lives to Colorado and the lifestyle here and that is ok. That will always be a part of us. But we live on a planet full of opportunity and have more mobility as a species than any time in the past. Therefore, we will enjoy Colorado while we’re here and when the time is right, the other parts of this great world as well. We will live a life transplanet.

    I got so excited reading about your move to Puerto Rico that I had to write to you before Reading everything you posted. I was born in Puerto Rico, and have often gone back to visit, but I never thought of moving back to stay. I left the island at age eighteen, married to an American man from Minnesota. Our marriage had to end because he could not give up the drinking. Now I live in San Diego with my second husband of 38 years. Although San Diego is a beautiful place, I often wish that I had a little house in Rincon so I could go there for my vacations.

    Anyway, the other reason I got excited reading your post is that a few years ago I visited Colorado and was tempted to move there. It was in September and it was beautiful, now after seeing in the news all the weather changes, I am glad that my husband said no way.

    I sincerely wish you and your husband good health and a wonderful time on the island. And if you go to my website you can read all about me and why I moved away from all the vines and Pana trees. I noticed the Pana behind your house, which is one of my favorite trees. I hope that all goes well for you. And if you ever want to call me here is my number: 619 – 286-6397

    With many blessings,
