Check it out!! Our solar panels are up! AND WORKING! It was such a sunny day yesterday, we were so lucky ☀️The battery was super flat though so the monitor isn’t working yet, but the wee regulator light was flashing so it’s being charged :D

I am so over the moon, I’m so happy and excited. I have to say a humungous THANK YOU again for all your support helping us raise the money to buy the panels. These things are like witchcraft to me, they create electricity from sunlight?! We can charge our phones from trapped sunshine? It’s mad, and bizarre, and incredibly liberating! We don’t rely on anyone else for our electricity now, just the sun!

Thank you for making the Sunshine Fund such a success, here’s to living off grid! 🍻

La voz de ese eco distante sonaba quebradiza al mismo tiempo que diáfana, se asimilaba a aquel espejo roto de cristal que quedó atascado en el recuerdo por las lágrimas que quedaron putrefactas sobre su superficie.
Lloraba de miedo, estaba resquebrajando un futuro sin vida ya latente y un efímero presente destinado a morir, perdiéndome en el tiempo. Soñaba con un final precipitado mientras le miraba a los ojos en silencio, le intentaba acariciar y solo abrazaba el aire, le sostenía, sin querer, la mirada al viento.
Sin embargo, el arruyo de los años sustituyó su ausencia por la soledad, y mi dolor, se convirtió en invierno.
Durante muchas lunas busqué su cuerpo, mientras yo yacía en la tierra de la somnolencia sin razón ni conciencia de mis hechos y mis deseos.
Habitaba un mundo equidistante a mi verdad, perpendicular a mis ilusiones y diagonal a mis expectativas. En él, sobresalía una tenue llama que derrumbaba todo intento de perdición, que mantenía mis pesadillas lo suficientemente lejos de mí para que sobreviviera, aunque sin llegar jamás a vivir.
Siempre caminaba aterrorizada hacia ella con la esperanza de desprenderme de la mitad sobrante en mi ser, pero nunca fui capaz de dividirme para entregarme a medias, y ese fue mi gran defecto y error, ser un imposible, inalcanzable e ineludible ente de amor infinito.
