Thanks for stopping by, whether you got here by a link or hitting "next blog" -- I am glad you are here. I've also done some writing on homeschooling, and what I learned thinking I was teaching.

Falling Back

When told the reason for Daylight Saving time the old Indian said, "Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket."

This Sunday we will lose the hour of sunlight we gained in spring, which we had lost last fall – having only regained the hour we lost in the previous spring – and so forth.

I wish I could lose at least sixty of those less than a stellar flash-by moments when I said something stupid, snarky, or sanctimonious. Or I wish I could fall back and regain the treasures that are often locked in humdrum minutes of what seem to be tedious days.

I think about this when I am resetting the clocks -- especially the electronic clock on the stove as I tap forward or backward minute by minute.  Maybe the best time to restrain or regain is now? 

How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?

~Dr. Seuss
