Fall back, my friends

Daylight Saving Time is upon us once again, which means we gain an hour Sunday morning. While I’ve never really understood why we still do this, I do admit that I look forward to adding another hour to my day. Much better than the spring ahead concept.

But it’s all an illusion anyway, since the truth is there isn’t an additional hour in the day. It’s semantics.

But speaking of concepts, time is one of thosse fascinating ones that I love to read about. We all acknowledge it’s man made, like money as a form of currency. And similar to money, time seems to play a significant role in our lives. We worry about running out of it. Deadlines can exert an enormous amount of stress in our work lives. And yet, having too much time on our hands is looked upon as a bad thing.

Perhaps one of my favorite quotes about is from the Talmud: who forces time is pushed back by time; who yields to time, finds time on his side.
