I want people to tell me when they think I'm being unkind or harmful, so I can learn & grow into more constructive behaviours. ๐Ÿ’œ

Hi, I'm Kira!

I'm a white nonbinary trans girl in my early 30s.

I am a verrry curious humyn. I value my connection to plants & nature, free software, small simple handmade tools, exploring new things & places, making interesting things, & doing experiments.

Currently, I'm studying earthskills, sailing, various DIY skills, & how to think more like a scientist. I'm partway into my gender metamorphosis, and healing past wounds & traumas. I'm here to have fun, learn & share new things, and make friends.

I communicate best with people who utilize #1-#7 of eastbaymeditation.org/wp-conte and have low tolerance for people who behave unkindly or who I don't feel comfortable around, and will mute or block as needed.

Hey friends, fyi that I've mostly been tooting from sunbeam.city/@tty if you're interested in continuing to follow my typedwords :3

Just realized I meant engine, not generator! TIL engine=mechanical energy and generator=electrical energy

Trying to find any prior work around solar generators that use temperature differentials to induce rotation.

So far I've only found en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crookes_ and a solar-thermal stirling engine -- anyone know of others?

so weird reading an article in a magazine about someone doing this for a year since I've been doing it for TEN YEARS

Gosh, I've been super stressed lately. I need to slow the heck down while also not neglecting myself.

I did some macro photography yesterday!

It's *hard*! I don't have a macro lens, so the stacking technique I'm doing makes the plane of focus suuuuper narrow.

I just put out my hand on the balcony to a monarch butterfly and it landed on me! :D

It was a beautiful moment. ๐Ÿฆ‹
