we had ferocious winds, along with rain/sleet, then snow
Our electric began to flicker and we know all too well, after three flickers,
it's going out...and it did.
while sitting, enjoying the quiet by the light of the oil lamps, I started thinking...
time seems to slow down when there is no electricity.
maybe because one doesn't have all those digital clocks staring at you
with their brightly illuminated numbers...
they are everywhere.... kitchen stoves, microwaves, alarm clocks...on & on & on.
As the night crept on...slowly...I just looked around my dimly lit home...seems to look
so much better by the light of oil lamps and candles. Warm and Cozy
I went to bed thinking that I was born in the wrong century (I think this often)
..or maybe I'm a reincarnation of an old soul that walked & worked this land hundreds of years ago. Just yearning for the days of old. The simple ways, the simple life.
