I found a very pretty reflection on the recent NYC blackout on a blog called flashhack. Check it out.
Witness the City fall into darkness.
Fifty million people, unplugged.
So they wander, and talk, and meet neighbours they never knew they had.
And sleep on roofs. And stare at stars now unmasked.
Who says the world lacks silliness? And joy?
Isn’t it funny how we, the so-called ‘Third World’, can still tell the difference between no elecricity and the end of the world?
