The Plan

So, we're standing around in our post-storm era, (see post of 7:50 AM today), thinking maybe we should live 24 hours a month without electricity. Get back to the basics, reconnect, live completely in this very moment, feel the grit in our unplugged lives.

Except for the refrigerator of course. And it can't be on a Saturday when my writing group meets here or on Friday when I'm gone all day at another writing group, or Thursday when we're at the movies taking advantage of the senior discounts.

Without electricity except for charging our phone batteries and our camera batteries and operating our solder gun. Pretty soon the exceptions outnumber the rule and we're thinking, maybe we can build up to it, maybe leave the bathroom nightlight off. See how it goes.
