I look forward to Daylight Savings like a foolish child each year. Turning the clock back by 1 hour feels like stealing time back from the jaws of death or something- and since this one hour is usually late at night, it means an extra hour of sleep- a worthy cause. For anyone who doesn’t know yet, DST is at 2am on November 3rd.

We have:

gnarled, veiny hands and forearms,

(and feet too, from too much walking),

an interest in the blues,

a propensity for hedonism,

a love for the written word,

an appreciation of beauty in stretches of untamed road,

contrasting views of the world,

and an unceasing fascination with each other.

– dug up an old tidbit I’d scribbled sometime earlier this year. Inspired by something Shalmi said.
