I am back home on this side of the pond. As I write that I am thinking the "this side" comment will soon not say anything about my actual location.
I am at my home on the west side. West side of the Atlantic. East side of the U.S.
For simplicity let's use the Atlantic as the middle of the universe. Florida = west side. Madrid = east side. Agree? Agree.
Crunch time. 1.5 weeks to move out of my condo. Donate and give away all of my worldly possessions.
Begin the process of obtaining a residence visa for Spain. I hope the Spanish Consulate agrees that I will be an asset to their country.
Breathe in - Breathe out - One step at a time - Know that it will all work out - Remember why I'm choosing this choice...
and when all else fails find serenity remembering this...
