Earth Hour, I Celebrated

Over the course of the years the reminders come around differently. In this year’s case, my little pal, Faria aka “Butterfly” reminded me by text.

It came as no surprise when I looked out at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 25, 2017, that the city that lay before me, was still awake.

I sat in solitude with peace around me. Candles flickered. The stillness of my breath ambient with my heart beating as one. I am one. One person.

Twitter popped into my head. Biz Stone’s book "Things A Little Bird Told Me" had kept me up one night. To finish it.

In London, the Buckingham Palace’s Royal Family had turned off the lights. How wonderful. Busy city blocks catapulted into the sphere marking this day, all over the world by turning off the switches. Videos to prove it.

While we are one, as individuals, so too is our World. Our Global community. We all share the air. What we put out, we breath in. Everywhere. From every country. From everyone.

--> Think about that and how our mere survival depends not only on the air, but the water we drink and the food we eat. All of which wouldn’t exist without air. Our air. Our World's air.
