What I Shed Today

lightening up a little at a time

for one hour, the lights

on March 29, 2014

Nimue and I are observing Earth Hour, a global event in which people voluntarily switch off their lights at 8:30 pm local time to, as the organizers say, celebrate commitment to the planet. (I might be cheating a bit by using the computer … yet raising our collective consciousness is at the action’s heart.)

I’ve had a full day, and I’m not done with “work” yet. I haven’t finished preparing for tomorrow’s occasions and duties. But this quiet hour in “the dark” has come as a great gift, reminding me of what I want to do (and not do) that will endure. Ama, whom we know in and through Mother Earth, have mercy on us … help us to have mercy on Earth and all her children.

shedding style: refuse

Comments welcome … what might you shed for the whole biosphere’s sake?
