turn off

09Feb06
What if we suddenly decided to turn everything off for a day?

Everything— lights, TV, stoves— everything. What would that be like? It’s an interesting idea, and maybe even worth trying sometime. It would certainly require some planning— like the things to eat and what to do during this day and night. You would have to plan it out, more or less, before you do it.

It really makes you think— there is so much technology around that we don’t even pay attention to— it’s just there. Cook, work, recreate— its all about the plugs in the wall.

Get the candles real! People have lived without electricity for most of our existence. They were day people, for sure. It can be done even now. Maybe we all should from time to time. It will get us ready for a time when we may have to live without all the stuff.
