Happy Earth Hour!

Just a quick reminder that tonight we all have the opportunity to celebrate Earth Hour by switching off all the lights between 8.30-9.30pm. Amidst complaints that this is just another liberal publicity stunt, I think it is important to remember that we are here and alive because of this magical planet, which continues to sustain us despite our best efforts at planetary destruction. The nourishment, joy, beauty, and love that we are blessed to experience in every moment are a gift that we should never take for granted. This is a wonderful chance for people to come together and honour Earth, whether strolling outside in the fresh air, or eating some delicious dessert by candlelight. Thank you Earth!

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children"
