Tonight we observed Earth Hour, turning off all our lights from eight to nine p.m., as others did the same when it turned eight o'clock in their time zones around the world. We lit candles and finished cooking supper in the semi-darkness. We talked, listened to radio, and I drew. "Will we have Earth Hour every night now?" asked the youngest member of the family. "I like this." We turned some of the lights back on at nine, but the house felt quieter, calmer. I think we'll darken the house and have candles with dinner more often - see if a small gesture can give rise to a new habit.
