Every now and then an opportunity comes along to do something and be part of the global community. I signed up for Earth Hour a while ago because I liked the idea of people choosing do do something active to give meaning to a cause. So when Earth Hour swung around last night in our neck of the woods, we were out in the candlelit courtyard having a braai with best friends and family. And it was beautiful. We were blessed with a wind free, warm evening and a star studded night sky. We ate and laughed and talked as the coals burned and the cats jumped around in the creepers.
