Curl up in my heart

Since March 19 a couple of things have been an emotional roller coaster, especially when I start to think of beautiful things such as our (Venezuelans) natural places, weather, food, mates, family and the list goes on and on...
So I tried to get out of focus every now and then, hit youtube and start watching bunch of videos related to Australia, series, movie trailers... and all of the sudden I get to the “up” movie trailer (Pixar upcoming CG movie – which looks more than cool) and I started wonder... If I could, by any chance, get one job spot in Pixar once in Australia... Who knows, uh?
Then I watch one “behind the scenes” related trailer and decided to watch it... next to it, my heart went pumping hard, beating with emotion and at the same time sadness...
Maybe, if you watch the trailer you will understand a bit more...

Just as a note... THE NOTE... Venezuela isn’t that “very remote and weird place in South America” but the Amazonas is. And it was also weird that one of the 7th natural wonder is one of those places “you would never know it existed”... Turns out Venezuela has one of the oldest grounds on earth (1.7 billion year old) called “mácizo guayanes – escudo guayanes” (or Guyana Shield) being the base of the South American plate, underlying in Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Suriname and Guiana. And as part of this formation, the highest water fall on earth with more than 970mts of free water fall.. Angel Falls.
If you ask me what I am leaving behind in order to get access for a better future... I will be leaving very few things because the meaningful things are kept in my heart (my family, my mates, my memories). But not going to deny it, it hurts.
Till next time.

Hi Rod,

I loved your post, it reminded me why our country is so special.
It is a real shame that due to the political tension many Venezuelans are emigrating.
Just remember me and the rest of us who are staying in our beloved Venezuela.
Good luck and I wish you all the success in Australia.

Karla

Saludos

Hey Karla,

Sadly I am not emigrating running away from the political tension... There is something more than meets the eyes which is causing the Venezuelan's to be an insecure, unpleased and unstable human being; this is the real reason that many of us are going away from the paradise...

Just like running away from eden when it is inhabited by demons. Our demons are family values (or the lack of it).

Cheers

Nice post Rod. Our country is beautiful. We should always remember the best things and:
"Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do" Old saying
