It's time for the Time Change again this year. The annual "spring forward" is here. I am not a fan of the Time Change. I am not the type person who resists 'any' change. After all, my word of the year is: flexible. I am open to doing things in a different, out-of-the-box sort os way. But, please, don't take my newly lit mornings away from me already!
I know the nights will be light longer. I know I will fit in that extra walk with Dave, my golden retriever. I know I will get more done at night just because it has fooled me into thinking it is earlier than it is. But...
The mornings!!!! I leave home before 7:00 and it is DARK. There doesn't even seem to be the promise of light yet at that hour. When I make it to my destination, it is a little lighter, but not enough. Just last week I could hear the birds as I walked to my car in the morning. Just last week I could actually SEE the sun as I walked into the building. Just last week it seemed that spring was just around the corner. Don't take my glorious bright mornings from me already!
Everyone says that after Spring Break, it will be light in the morning again. That's what they say. But right now, that doesn't help. It is still very dark as I drive into the big city. It is very dark when I travel that long highway. It is very dark when I begin my day. Hurry up spring!
