Are we dizzy yet? I feel like I have been through a time tunnel and the end is way down the road. Winter is coming and I am glad for the extra hour for the kids to get to the bus stop in the morning in the sunshine. Here it is 5pm though and it is DARK! Ooooo.
I envy Arizona their stance against the craziness. They do not change their times. I have to admit that even in the gloom the Fall evenings here in San Diego are incredible. A bright orange sunset and now the crickets are chirping. I don't think they know about daylight savings time. I hope not. I just cornered one in the backyard and he looked a little disoriented.
Time is such an important thing and at the same time doesn't mean anything. I have heard if you want to relax just sit and look at a clock. It will tick tock away at a slow steady pace and pretty soon you will be right down looking at a second as a long time. Breathing to the tick tock tic toc.
I am getting nervous and excited for the deadline of the election. The next day the President will have to negotiate one of the most nerve wracking sessions of Congress trying to keep the administration of the government from going belly up. The tax cuts for the rich played a key role in the debaucle last time. I am sure whoever is elected will have to fight a good fight. I wish for bipartisanship but I imagine there will be contention no matter who is elected.
I like to resort to magical thinking when I am cornered. If the crickets do not know about daylight savings time then I am not going to worry about it. They are out there singing away trying to find a mate and they don't really care about much else. They certainly don't care who is going to be elected President of the United States.
