Underground Town: Coober Pedy, Australia
The town of Coober Pedy still exists and is home to more than 1,600 residents. It is referred to as the opal capital of the world because it produces more opal than anywhere else on Earth. The town consists of homes called “dugouts,” which were built underground to combat the unbearable heat on the surface and to keep their babies safe from dingoes and Australians.
sometimes i want to talk about how i hope my ex is doing okay, and how im deciding to give myself the closure that he will never provide me with - because i deserve closure and i deserve to love myself enough that i can find closure and peace within myself - but then i get… scared? worried? uncomfortable? speaking it into existence, into reality hurts me more than i can ever share. because then it becomes real and the fact that he will never come back and the fact that i have to keep living despite it all makes me so sad.
