Silver lining as Eskom's loadshedding gives us time to rekindle family life

Thanks to Eskom loadshedding us, South Africans have been able to reflect, have dialogue with their families and rekindle the very essence of what families are all about, the writer says.

Eskom's non-performance has given us the opportunity to slow down.

Sitting in the dark, enjoying takeaways from a nearby suburb that has not been load-shed, gives us time to reflect, entering into dialogue with our families and rekindle the very essence of what families are all about.

No TV, no radio; just peace and quiet, enveloping every inch of our being as a strong meditative process begins, allowing us to have a relationship with our humanity.

Rush has now become hush, as we become mesmerised by a flickering candle.

Early to bed, early to rise - a peaceful existence. Thank you Eskom.

Peter Bachtis, Benoni
