Daylight Savings - Day 71

Daylight savings time is one of those things I have never been able to wrap my mind around. Why exactly do we need to change the time to make the day last longer? Doesn't God already do that with the change of seasons? And what difference does it make what the time on the clock says? And why do we really need to give up an hours sleep, only to get it back again in the Fall? Despite those logical questions...I am excited for long summer days to arrive. So I will choose to see this as a sign, like the buds starting to appear on the trees, that winter is beginning to die, and spring is arriving - closely followed by summer!

“I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind…”   Robertson Davies
