So Isabel, home now for approximately three days, gives me this brief update:
"I have been very hungry and I have lost exactly 26 oz. Walked the dog, came back home; the gardener had gone and I found the gate closed. No cellular (I forgot it in Chile). No one is home. Climbed a tree, crawled on the wall, jumped down and almost broke a leg. Olivia on the other side was wailing. Managed to get back on my feet.
That night, when I told Nico what had happened, he asked me why I hadn’t opened the gate using the code, as we always do. The truth is that it didn’t cross my mind. I am truly losing it."
Let’s hope not. When Isabel has a bad hair day I want to hear about it, and when that short lady climbs over walls that could easily be opened with a simple code, I definitely want to hear about it. I am going to keep stalking her and jotting down what I learn. Isabel inspires me, makes me laugh and sometimes makes me cry. Have you read Island Beneath the Sea yet? Stay tuned for October and beyond....
