Earth Hour

It’s Earth Hour this Saturday 26th March 2011, so don’t forget to switch your lights off at 8.30pm 🙂 to show your commitment for action on climate change.

Australian Poetry is celebrating Earth Hour by encouraging poets to spend their hour of darkness, writing a poem. Follow this link for the details.

I would love to spend my hour writing a poem, but don’t think my children will let me. They get a bit excited when all the light are off and insist we do things like prance along the beach and view the stars. Given that the stars are so much brighter and more numerous when there is little competition from lights, I think they are on the right track.
