Earth Day

For Earth Day, we participated in the 8:30-9:30 pm "lights out," getting by with two candles, the occasional cell phone screen or pocket flashlight.

I wandered around the house quite a bit at first, appreciating the darkness. Looking out windows. Nobody else seemed to be doing it. Not much publicity, I guess.

Jo spent most of the time sending txt or talking on phone. After I was through wandering, I did some block play & photography.

What with the camera, phones, led flashlights, & various glowing power LEDs here & there, we were far from electricity/electronics-free or totally dependent on candle light. But the candles were our primary illumination for most of the hour, it was interesting to see what we could do.
