Time change awaits
Time marches on
for no one
Or, does it?
Daylight Saving Time
Are we saving daylight
or saving time
What difference does it make
if at all
Who does the changing
We change our time pieces
Do we change ourselves
or our environment
Or simply do we “wind” ahead
or “back” an hour
depending on our geographic location
and the prescribed moment twice a year
on a Sunday
at 2 am
Has anyone told our bodies about this?
Why do the dog and the cat and the hamster and the guinea pig and the goldfish
not seem to notice?
Is it because they don’t wear watches
or look at the clock
For your consideration:
What if the entire world took a collective, heartfelt, time out during these time changes? For one hour, twice a year? Let’s take time changes into our own control, and allow ourselves 6o minutes to hear the messages of our soul. I mean this as a deliberate practice, and not as an esoteric concept.
For me, the past several years, it’s been a reset so to speak for my nervous system – my physical body system, and my inner knowing – my spiritual body.
Back before my more recent devotional and deep dives into the spiritual realm, I hosted in my home “clock parties,” where a large group of my friends and I would toast to the time change, eat clock-shaped frosted sugar cookies, and dance the night away the Saturday before the time change. So, there’s that option, too. Pick your poison, erm, tradition.
Okay, your turn:
Making the switch to and from Daylight Saving Time (by the way, it’s Saving, without an “s” at the end, in case you’re wondering…as was I…the things I ponder!) – Does making the switch by one hour twice a year impact you? If so, in what ways do you notice it? Sleeping patterns disrupted? Stomach growling at seemingly weird hours? Are you happy about it? Frustrated? Maybe for you it’s not a big deal either way?
