A spring forward tonight, daylight lasts longer in the spring and summer anyway.......how come we spring forward? and why don't we spring forward on the actual first day of spring and fall back on the first day of fall? Wouldn't that be simpler if we are going to manipulate time? This Daylight Savings Time seems a perfectly good waste of government time and work......how many hours and days were spent to pass the bill, how many more important issues were passed over? Just curious about this stuff. I admire the states that did not adopt it.
So what will you do with all your extra day light hours? Do you spend more time outdoors?
It's interesting to hear friends and family talk about the longer days, but I'm not sure how much extra time we spend outdoors. For me, the toughest thing about Daylight Savings is the fact that the mornings are darker and it is harder for me to get going. About the time, my body gets use to the change, it's time to switch again.
I have often wondered what it would be like to live a life without recording time......no clocks, no calendars......just to live each day as it unfolds, work while it is daylight, sleep when it is dark. My grandparents lived that way.....when I was a kid I thought they were crazy, to go to bed at sundown and get up at sunset......but now and then, it seems like a really good idea.
So, I find myself looking at the clock tonight......I go to bed my normal time, yet it is an hour later.....do we ever truly get back that hour we lost?
All these time thoughts have made me dizzy, and probably you too.
Goodnight Sweet dreams
Don't forget to spring forward!
