  • It has been such a long time... I've missed you!

    I've been so busy enterprising since my last communique. Here is what has happened; in brief.

    One day I decided to help the Wind Farmers. I wasn't sure how I could help, or if they wanted my help; but I kept calling. They broke my heart a couple times, as I wanted to help so badly. When they said "No" my little giraffe heart shattered.

    I took time off work and went to visit my family. I pulled off the side of the road home to stare at the Wind Farms in the distance. I kept dreaming about them. (My dreams are powerful, they speak to me.) At my family home in Ontario I sadly told my Mother across our kitchen table (Lilac stained oak), that I wasn't going to get the Wind Farmers... not this year. She said; "Baby-skins, you are so much like your Father... but you have patience... you got that from me... Be patient. The Wind Farmers will come around eventually. Keep calling. Don't stop. We're (O'Leary) not the stopping-type."

    I stared up at the Blue Moon. I love August. I drank wine and dreamt about the Wind Farmers and made a wish. "Blue Moon, I only need one. One Wind Farm, the rest will come."

    The following day was the first time the Wind Farmers called me. It hasn't been easy. But they are easy and joyful and passionate and We have entered their 'raise.' That's the part where regular people can invest in the farms.

    Given the opportunity everyone will be inspired. Don't get me wrong... I think we're all in a lot of hot water. I think the skies and seas and creatures and people really need help. I don't get down-hearted... just because the Mountain is tall doesn't mean we shouldn't climb it.

    Love,
    Kristy
