Torchlit chess

Playing chess by torchlight is a beautiful thing. Having no electricity for almost 24 hours sure was definitely a challenge, but it was lovely to spend a few hours without the incessant background noise of TVs and computers. It was wonderful to have a proper family dinner, without people running off to do things as soon as they’ve finished their last mouthful.

It almost makes me wish for the times of candles and limited electricity…

But then I go to check my inbox or do some work, remember that the power’s out and I therefore have no Internet or computer, and curse the electricity for being down.
