Earth Hour 2010

This Saturday marks Earth Hour 2010, a darkened hour where the world is able to visually express their support for our beautiful earth. On Saturday March 27th at exactly 8:30 PM (local time) please show your support for our earth by turning off all your lights for one hour. No this one hour of darkness will not result in the end to global warming, Earth Hour simply acts as a a symbol for your willingness for change. Each year as the Earth Hour movement grows, and more and more lights are turned out, it is clear to see the success of the project. More and more people around the world are becoming aware and educated on what is truly going on in this planet, and are learning the necessary steps that must be taken in order to combat the negative influences that are affecting our planet.

Earth Hour can be much more than just an hour in the dark. Treat your Earth Hour as a celebration! Last year I suggested you have fun with your Earth Hour by treating it as an opportunity for romance. Gather up all your candles, put together a chocolate fondue set with your favourite fruit, play some great music, open a bottle of wine, and snuggle up with your loved one. What are you doing for Earth Hour this year?

Listening to:
Simon And Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence

Fingers crossed more will take part this year, where I lived last year houses were full of light, tv's playing, how needy some are of being entertained.

Candles, a glass or two of good wine and playtime with my cats will entertain me for many hours on Saturday night......

Hi Danielle:

I love your blog! The song by Simon and Garfunkel naturlly is an all-time favorite of mine. It was written in February 1964 by Paul Simon in the aftermath of the November 22, 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Keep up the great work.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence
