Spring Forward…………daylight savings time…….more sunlight in the evenings to drink wine on the deck, that’s what I say! Those poor souls in Arizona don’t know what they are missing! Even though it is always an adjustmentnt for me to let this one hour lapse from my life and try to change my circadian rhythm to mirror an artificially imposed rule, I do enjoy more sunlight, especially since I work in a place with no windows (who thought that was a good idea anyways??!!!?). Daylight savings time is not a new notion and was first discussed by Benjamin Franklin and first proposed by George Vernon Hudson in 1895. To me it means that Spring is exerting her power to once again posses us. I must say, the Tin Man does feel the need for some oil on the joints after the dark, damp winter!
Something is squeeking as I walk up the hills!
I have wandered about the yard (10 acres of it) today and tried to capture some of the beauty that I now get to enjoy with my extra hour of sunlight. While enjoying the photos (at least I hope you do!), please reflect on these wonderful quotes:
“I enjoy spring more than autumn now. One does, I think, as one gets older”
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
“A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.”
and to follow that…………
“At my age flowers scare me.”
