In participation of Earth Hour I turned off all the lights in the house and unplugged all my electrical devices last night. Liberated from the anxiety of always having something to do I was awakened by the moon light outside. I took a pillow onto the rear deck and passed the evening under the rising moon. There is no question that our awareness of the world around us is severely hampered by our dependence on all our gadgets. While I still had my camera in my hand (definitely a gadget), I found peace in reverting to a natural light source.
