Yesterday afternoon, we just had a power interruption at home.
No FB. The dishes I'm cooking at Cafe World will get spoiled.
I won't be able to check PEx.
I won't be able to charge my phones and my cam.
No TV. No stereo. No light.
I can read and write something, but only until sunset.
For a few hours, I will be dependent to candles and emergency lights.
It was only during power interruptions that I get to appreciate things that I
don't really see when there's PC, cellphones, TV.
I get to appreciate the light that candles bring.
I get to appreciate playing with shadows again, and the pretty silhouttes like the shadows of my feet.
I get to notice the beautiful fireflies at the vacant lot near the house.
I get to look outside my window and look at the stars, though the stars are always there.
I get to sleep early and rest longer than usual.
It was only when we are left with the simplest things that we appreciate the grandeur that simplicity brings.
