Hour Without Light

Today is Saturday, 29 March 2008.

On this date in 1970, British writer and pacifist Vera Brittain died.

All honour to her, author of the classic Testament of Youth.

Today is also The Hour Without Power, Earth Hour. We are each and all called upon to turn off our lights and all non-essential electrical-power-sucking appliances, from 8 PM local time to 9 PM local time.

The Museum of the Bourgeois, while the world’s first conceptual museum, has a secret physical presence. (MoB has not gone so metaphysical as to go all ethereal.)

From 8 to 9 PM, CD, the undisclosed location of The Museum of the Bourgeois will go totally non-electric. Won’t make a damn difference, but we at MoB believe in … shall we say, hopeless gestures.

Tune in at 7.45 PM CDT, for appropriate poetry.
