Fyrahundrafemtioförsta åseriet- #Earth hour 2017

I ett antal år har jag släckt i huset och tänt stearinljus och lyktor för att delta i den världsomspännande Earth Hour. Så också detta år. I år tänker jag läsa medan den där tysta och avelektrifierade timmen pågår. Om jag nu skulle tycka att det är svårt att läsa i skumrasket från stearinljuset, så kan jag ju alltid tänka på dem som för längesedan var tvungna att avstå från att läsa för att de inte hade någon ljuskälla när mörkret inträtt eller kanske de som inte fick läsa, för att man skulle spara på den talgdank man hade… Jag känner mig lyckligt lottad som i vanliga fall kan läsa när andan faller på…

Hur tillbringar du din timme?

Four hundred and fiftieth asic- #Earth hour 2017

There are moments when I just join in without second thoughts! This is such a moment. In about fifty minutes Earth Hour 2017 will start here in Sweden where I live. Every year I try to put out candles and lanterns in my windows this evening and thinking I am part of a movement worldwide. I also try to find things to do during Earth Hour, that is connected to the world… This year I have chosen to read in the light of a candle, but not just ”any book”… I expect to find wise words from very different perspectives when reading this book:

How will you celebrate this hour of ours?

Fourhundred and thirtysixth åsic- London, always safe and secure! #Londonfrossa

IMG_1811I’ve been to London several times and it doesn’t really matter how often I visit this busy city of the world. There are always new things to see. The London fire in 1666 or the Blitz during the second world war are both examples of disasters from the past. Nowadays London may suffer from occasional terror attacks, but just like before London seems to be a city to trust… I always feel safe and secure when I walk the streets of London. I never worry. To me, the people I meet seem just as relaxed, too, as if there wasn’t anything to worry about. I do however notice that the huge trees in the parks do suffer… they seem to be victims of a no longer clean environment. Maybe the smog will win in the end?

To me it seems as is the only serious threat London City may not cope with in the end IS environmental issues. This morning I watched the BBC for a weather forecast, but I also caught a glimpse of the news where a report of recent pollution was in focus. Obviously some parts of London deal with levels above what is recommended.

When speaking about environment I have noticed that many things here are organised, such as the painted walls outside Royal Festival Hall. The minute before I noticed this ares, that may be a skateboard park, we had walked past a tunnel for pedestrians, right under Waterloo Bridge and I had noticed that there were almost no tags or grafitti on the walls. I guess the authorities have invited the grafitti-painters to share their artistery in a limited area…I enjoyed what I saw! ❤
