Reading and writing (click here for more about my books) allow me to walk in the shoes of other people, and for that I sure am grateful!

Thank heaven for writers like Ariel Henley, a young woman who describes what it is to be born (in this case with her twin sister) with Couron Syndrome, a condition wherein the skull doesn’t evolve as it does for most of us. Along her journey that’s included countless surgeries, she’s…

Marii Freire comigo!

Ninguém me ensinou que mulheres são iguais a homens, e são quando se trata de direitos. Todavia, foi no dia a dia, que senti na pele o tratamento desigual, como toda mulher sente. O que me fez ter a postura que tenho hoje? É o fato de não deixar que me tratem com nenhum tipo de discriminação. Enquanto pessoas, temos os mesmos direitos. E quando você sentir essa diferença na prática, digo ” fora do papel ” não se sinta intimidada, porque nós enquanto pessoas, vivemos num mundo onde de fato, existe uma abertura diferente de ideias. Mas a educação e muita leitura, estreita muito as nossas diferenças. Através dela se tem a real noção de identidade, se desenvolve a autoconfiança e o autoconhecimento, além do nosso humanismo também. Portanto, o fato de estarmos aqui, não se trata de quem tem o controle de nada. Enquanto indivíduo ninguém é mais…

Take Time for These Things

From Behind the Pen

As I am preparing this post, it is 7:45 pm, and it is as dark as midnight outside. The moon is slowly rising, revealing the new phase of what was once a full stage just a few days ago. Suddenly, I hear what I think is someone making a noise outside my window, and I freeze. I continue to listen, only to learn that the noise is coming from one of the resident owls than hangs out in our trees. I took time to listen, and it connected me to the songs of night that lets me know life still continues its vibrancy, even when I don’t see it. Oh, what a treasure!

Take Time for 12 Things

Take time to Work –
It is the price of success.

Take time to Think –
It is the source of power.

Take time to Play –

Repurpose old solar panels on low-income houses

Darcy Hitchcock

After 20 years, solar panels will lose 10-20 percent of their capacity to generate energy. (NREL says to plan on losing 0.5% per year, so they should still produce 90 percent of the energy after 20 years. Older models might be a little less.) By then, your house will likely need a new roof so the old panels will have to come down, at least temporarily. You’ll likely want to install newer, more efficient panels. Rather than tossing the old ones, this Colorado nonprofit is installing them on low-income housing.

Since joining the Coldharbour Institute, a research nonprofit based in Gunnison, Equitable Solar Solutions has installed pre-owned solar panels on five homes, Strmberg said. It has partnered with social service organizations and state agencies, including the Colorado Energy Office’s Weatherization Assistance Program, which helps low-income families make energy upgrades to their homes.

“Ultimately, it’s going to provide the…
