Happy Birthday to Hugo, and let's keep thinking about the planet

Candlelight for Earth Hour

(I grabbed this quick sketch just as Steven was
getting ready to get up from the table
after our delicious Earth Hour meal.
He graciously sat for another couple of minutes.) 

I'm running late tonight because we drove out to Leamington to see the 
peach orchards.  I may put up a photo of that tomorrow.  But for now,
I'm going to repeat a post from Earth Day from 2020. Looking our our back windows
last night the people were like us -- lights out, candlelight.  It was a strange and
beautiful sight.  

"First Happy Birthday to Hugo Leemeijer in the Netherlands. Hugo
is the younger son of my friends - the fabulous artist Miranda Brouwers
and Rolf Leemeijer.

As for Earth Day Of course I could go on for the rest of the year.
This is a fast Earth Hour sketch from years ago. That is held
on a different day, but the focus is the same. Actually this
sketch looks more like our good friend David Cohen than
Steven.  But I like the sentiment.  We do want to try
and help the planet.

We have candles on the table every night.  And are romantic
at our best. I feel extremely lucky right now that we
have each other. I hope you had a good day. We did."

Have a loving your life day.
