No Electricity with mighty nighty thoughts !

What happened that the electricity has been cut off for one hour. It's a midnight now. Let me tell you my mighty thought during this hour before it's vanish as usual.

** For first time I went out at night (not by my own will) and gazed at stars again as I always did in my childhood. The stars still the same…nothing change …still shining brightly and give us signs and messages as I thought before….I was happy that gave me a chance to gaze again to this wonderful sky at night with that little diamonds sparkling from the day that God created this universe. No changes… unlike us…people changes…most of us changed and dropped many things.

** During this gazing, I noticed a shadow of some trees on the wall. What a silly imagination. The shadow looked like to me as a woman of the Middle Ages with big dress and unique hairstyle. See, my imagination is huge, productive and creative. So, anything random I see, I can imagine a reasonable picture inside it…once I saw dashes of water on the wall and I imagined like a man face inside this mark. So funny and silly…what I can do…this is me, but try to let you imagination work even once and try to find anything in the random shape….I'm sure you will imagine something reasonable in this randomly thing.

** After that I realized something very important…the new technology has its ugly face. I was really happy in that dim light of the sky without that strong illumination of the man-made lights….this made me feel more calm. The technology is so good and has its benefits, but in the same time its polluted our senses…all senses. The pollution is not only what we see, but there are many types of pollution. Auditory, optical, tangible, gustatory and even psychical. Our eyes now adjusted to these strong and harmed lights while naturally we have to use soft lights. Now, I can't forget TVs and computers radiations….with countless radiations that we face.
It wasn't that hot outside…it was really nice with natural air, not under ACs all the time. it's not healthy to be under ACs all day. We should try to reduce our dependence on these machines. I'm trying myself…I don't switch on AC in my room even in the daytime…because my room is not facing the sun directly and cool air comes from my window…that satisfy me than AC.
Yeah, could be my biggest problem is with my PC. I spend most of my day in front of this monitor…till my eyes started to water. I'm trying my best to put a specific time, but that really useless.

Anyways, even with no electricity the technology kept hunting us… I heard my neighbor's kids playing and screaming for their video games. Besides, each one of my siblings opened his mobile phone and started to play with. I just threw my mobile in my pocket with silent tone and went to walk outside gazing at my dear friend Stars.

    Sama, I read an article from the book, Don't be Sad: Create Sweet from Lemon. Well, I guess thats what you did. :). As for myself, I can't stand being without electricity, not even for a minute.
    I remember once entering my flat in UK, as soon as I flicked a light switch, everything went black. I had to grope my way around the house, it was really really dark. So I had to first get to the kitchen, turn on the cooker to get some light, then took matches and started looking for the circuit breaker, I had no idea where it was, and there was no one to call at that time...

    Layal…I remember that. I think it was difficult time for you.

    Nash…dear…it was not bad for me maybe because I'm here among my family and I know all people around in my country, but in the loneliness could be so difficult and I can't imagine myself alone in flat in other country. Horrible

    I think the book you meant here is (Don't Be Sad) for Ayth AlQarni… I have the book and I remember this text.

    Layal is writing in English! Hurray! And I understand every word, Layal. No need to be shy!

    You can make lemonade from lemons, that's a saying in America.

    I lived in a house in college in North Carolina with no air conditioning at all. We just opened the windows and dressed in t-shirts and shorts all the time and we were HOT. But it was okay.


    One time my wife and I and my son were travelling and camping at night. Elizabeth's sister told us, "In the California desert, it's hot in the day, but it gets very cold at night." So, when we got to the California desert, we got out our tents, even though it was hot. And we crawled into the sleeping bags and waited for it to cool down.

    And waited. And waited. And waited.

    Ten o'clock. Boiling hot. Eleven o'clock. Boiling hot. Midnight will surely make it cool!

    Midnight. Boiling hot. By the time it was two in the morning, we figured out that it was just going to be boiling hot ALL NIGHT LONG. Elizabeth went out of the tent and lay down under the sky on top of a picnic table! She was lucky; I think she slept all of ten minutes that night! I got zero.

    When we talked to Anne, we said, "Hey, what did you mean, telling us it gets cold at night in the desert!?!" She said, "Oh, I meant the high desert. You must have been in the low desert."

    Well, high, low, or medium, it was a bloody oven! Even the big black insect crawled under the tent floor at night to get cool! No wonder they bite people; bad temper from the heat!

    But Sama is right. The stars are beautiful when you are away from all lights. When I was a boy I lived in New York City. One night, all the lights in the whole city of New York went out! The Great Blackout, they called it.

    We went up to the roof of our building and looked at the whole, great city: Dark! And we looked up and saw the stars that were usually drowned in light and invisible.

    Just to let you know in case you don't see my comment at Princess'--

    I will be gone for more than a week at the beach and likely computerless. So don't think I don't care about you any more!

    I may get to drop by tomorrow, we don't leave til Friday. But it'll be a busy day preparing and I don't know if I'll get the chance.

    Oh Jeff….that's nice. Nice stories you have… See, you can make such interesting blog with all these interesting stories. "The Great Blackout"…Hmmm…NYC looks like Vigas with the strong lights turning the night into daylight (No...I never have been to America… I just watched that on TV). So, sure, it was interesting moment for all of you to see the normal and natural lights of the stars and sky. It's a moment of amusing. Gazing to God Creation.
    Oh…Yes… I didn't notice that HE DID IT. Nice.

    that's Okay...Have a Good Time too dear. we will miss you,but nice to have a break at the beach. ;)

    Balqess...dear...HI...welcome back...Kair Enshallah. Lesh Hal Geba.
