Turn off the lights, take it slow. We invite all of you to join "Candle Night Summer Solstice 2007."
Turn off your lights for two hours on the evenings of June 22nd to the 24th, 8 to 10PM.
You can do something special: read a book to your children by candlelight, enjoy a quiet dinner with your loved ones. Some think of energy saving or peace. Others think about people in other countries and other places on our planet.
Pulling the plug means opening a window to a new world.
I have another suggestion: grab a notebook and a pen, create a cozy space near a window, and write while there is still sunlight. When the sun goes down, stop writing. Then sit and enjoy the twilight and the nightfall. Look for stars and night clouds, or close your eyes and listen to the night sounds.
