it’s later than we think


twice every year

daylight savings time

messes with my inner clock

an insomniac’s seasonal nightmare

hard to say which is harder

on mind and body:

to spring ahead or fall back

why do we try to

interfere when time

doesn’t wish to be saved?


Time for quadrille #28 at dVerse Poets Pub this week!

    I agree. Why mess with time

    I do like it though when the days get longer…

    Too true. That’s one kind of spring we don’t need.

    You wouldn’t thing an hour would make a difference, but it does.

    Oh Lynn, you’ve hit the nail on the head! I was taken unawares by the DST this evening! We’ve got it on 26th March in Europe and the UK and I won’t know whether I’m coming or going for at least a week. I totally agree:
    ‘why do we try to
    interfere when time
    doesn’t wish to be saved?’

    Oh I can feel your annoyance and share your pain. I wholeheartedly agree with this line; “why do we try to interfere when time doesn’t wish to be saved?”

    Winter & DST–both are not our friend. WA state toyed with idea of deleting it. I would endorse that whole-heartedly. Opening the Pub one hour early gave us back the last hour though.

    When I worked, my territory covered three states and two time zones, two of which honored DST, and one which was on DST year around. Just keeping track of what time it was where was a full time job! I’m sure you speak for many! ( I was in the state that had DST year around, and I loved that. Now we’re back to EST/DST again).

    I am with you on this Lynn, it feels so unnatural to change the clocks

    Amen, sista. I have run into so many people in 2 days who agree with you. A good reason we shouldn’t mess with God’s plan for creation.

    These time changes make no sense to me either. When I was working in Phoenix, Arizona, the time didn’t change. They were always the envied exception to the rule for scheduling remote meetings although because they didn’t change their clocks the scheduling became even more interesting two times a year. We had to get used to a new difference in times.

    I wish they stop meddling and interfering with time Lynn ~ I had a hard time waking up to go to work this morning ~
