Turn Off the Lights, Take it Slow

Just passing on the following information to TsukuBlog readers….

Candle Night Summer Solstice 2007
June 22 (Fri.) to 24 (Sun.), 8PM to 10PM

From their website:
What is candle night?
Candle Night Summer Solstice 2007. Turn out your lights for two hours on the Summer solstice, June 22nd, eight to ten p.m.
Do something special-Read a book with your child by candlelight. Enjoy a quiet dinner with a special person.
This night can mean many things for many people.
A time to save energy, to think about peace, to think about people in distant lands who share your planet.

Pulling the plug open the window to a new world.
Awakens as to human freedom and diversity.
It is a process, finding a larger possibility of the human civilization.
By turning off lights for only two hours, we will be all loosely connected.

Let’s make a “wave of darkness” spread over the globe together.
On the evening of Summer solstice, June 22nd, for two hours from 8 to 10 p.m. Turn out your lights, take it slow.
