It’s now the 27th here in the Central time zone, and that means it’s Earth Hour day: at 8:30 tonight local time, people, businesses, schools, and even some well-known landmarks will be turning off the lights for an hour. Sponsored by WWF, this symbolic gesture by millions around the world is meant to demonstrate global support for action against climate change.
Some call it meaningless symbolism; others see it as an opportunity to dial back a bit and enjoy a little downtime, alone or with family and friends. Got plans to read or play games by candlelight? Sit on the porch with a glass of green wine and enjoy the night sky? Pick at an acoustic guitar?
I have no doubt I’ll be missing it this year… will likely be sleeping hard. Love to hear your plans, though… if you have them. If not, interested in hearing why you’re choosing not to mark the occasion (and there are definitely good reasons for making that choice).
