I love this time of year.   The breeze carries a hint of spring, the Leafs season is just about done (ouch) and, as a bonus this year, if it’s a clear night and you stare at the western sky as the sun sets you’ll see Venus shining away in all her glory.

And this Saturday, March 28, not long after the sun sets , many of us will be observing Earth Hour, a celebration of our home planet and a reflection on the things we need to do to preserve life as we know it.

At UHN, as in years past, we’ll be making extra efforts to turn things off…we already do a decent job, and it can be a bit of a challenge since hospitals never really sleep, but it’s important to take the time to reflect.

And hopefully if enough people turn off this Saturday…things will get dark in the City, making Venus shine all the more brighter, and reminding us that Earth is the only planet we have…
