Diana and I did Earth Hour last Sunday, like many others did (I hope). We turned off all the lights, unplugged all of our power strips and lighted several candles throughout the house. For an hour we sat at her table playing cards and talking. It was a wonderful experience! It brought the two of us closer to each other and the thousands of others who participated that day/night. Talking about it afterwards we thought it would be nice to do on a regular basis, maybe once a week. We aren’t religious people but I feel we are spiritual and at the moment we don’t have an outlet for that emotion, we felt that we could turn Earth Hour into a time to share with each other, our neighbors and our greater community, the plants, animals, soil, that surround us and which we spend so little of our time thinking about or recognizing. Taking an hour out of our busy schedule to reflect on this, while giving a little back just seems right to us.
