Sunset after sunset

Worked a lot over the past week. Did not have the time to update that journal. I was waiting for the sunset to come.

I need to wait for it everyday. First thing in the morning, I put the circuit out under the sun, letting it wake up, giving the batteries a chance to recharge. The days have a strange shape. I seem to be waiting for the sunset to come for the whole day, measuring the voltage increase as the day goes, doing some internet, writing some code, running simulations.

Then, when it comes, I'm always late. Around 4 o'clock, I got to restart the circuit with the new, enhanced program. Even though I'm waiting for it all day long, I'm always running after it, coming back home with the scooter, getting the program to compile, checking if everything is fine. Then I wait, carefully looking at the evolution of the little indicator LED.

It goes very fast. In about an hour, the sun dives down to the horizon, setting the sky on fire. You can feel it in your skin.

Then the chill comes.

I'm not used to this. Dealing with reality. I can debug only once a day. For a programmer, this is nightmare. But I like it, that pace, that rythm. Ageless and uncontrollable, it is incredibly comforting.
