Earth Hour ......We did it!!!
Turned off the lights and sat in the darkness with the kids.
Who could imagine the calmness of it all and the sense of peace that this moment gave.
The stillness in time, no distractions........the quiet.
.........The kids were completely taken aback by this but if only it could last.
I guess it was a sense of curiosity too that puzzled them as to why Mum was turning off the lights and sitting in the dark. The little one was "Ooohing" and "Aahing" at the shadows casted on the walls from the outdoor traffic. A mini light show for the night.
I wonder what it was like in the those big cities halfway across the world, home Sydney Harbour in the pitchness of dark.
My only let down tonight was the blaring lights from my next door neighbour's place, all fully turned on with the exception of the unused guest room!!!!!!
