I am celebrating Earth Hour tonight…turning off all my lights from 8:30-9:30pm. It’s not like this gesture is going to save money or much energy…it is more an act of acknowledging that I value the world’s efforts to adopt a lifestyle not based on energy excess…
Even Times Square is going dark.
so I am grabbing my candlesticks, my bottle of wine, and basking in the good feeling of participating in a global ritual of reverence.
