O:Dark in the am.

Damn moving back and forth from DST to ST.
At least I was due for a little extra shut eye.

We humans think we're so smart, manipulating the clock, endeavoring to get a little more work time or play time out of a day.

Truth is we only change our perceptions. The earth still revolves around the sun at more or less the same speed. We spin around on a tilted top, at more or less the same speed each day, month after month, year after year, millinia after millinia, for the last God Knows how long.

Over and Oover.

And we think we're so smart, because of all the marvelous things we can do that previous generations haven't least as far as anyone knows.


Not one of us can create a sunrise.

Humans are so arrogant. We should spend more time being humbled and in awe.

You are so right Jean. Mostly I go through each day forgetting that.
Generally to my regret.

I got up at what should have been O6:early, realized it was O5:whathhell, tried to go back to sleep in the ezy chair, got up when the wife did at 7... no make that 6am, fixed some java, had a cup with apple turnover, realized I was cold, went back to bed pulled up the cover and slept 'til 08:thank God.

Its a conspiracy... The government takes away an hour, then later in the year they give it back. Some of the citizens have passed away in the months between, and who do you think keeps the left over hours?...

And its all done in the middle of the night when no one is paying attention. Coincidence? I think not. :)

At least I didn't over sleep for work this morning :)
