Ahhhh.....sweet, daylight savings time!

Why is that an extra hour and a half of daylight makes all the difference? There's still 24 hours in a day, 14 to 16 of those hours of which are filled with productive activites that one can do while one is awake. But yet...

I love you daylight savings time! However, I wish you didn't exist! I wish the powers that be would just leave time alone. I mean...it's time. TIME. Leave it alone. Let it be what it wants! Let it collide with the seasons and work everything out without us droll humans interfering.

Artists have written great songs about you, dear TIME. "If I could save time in a bottle..." Gotta love Jim Croce.

"Tickin' away, the moments that make up a dull day," Pink Floyd.

We love you TIME, we try to acquire more of you and we curse you when you slip away. We ponder the moments that we've lost and dream about the moments to come. And yes, as we grow older, you seem to move even quicker. You become more elusive.

But we love the daylight. We are creatures of the light.

Thanks for the extra sunlight. We'll take it, no matter how it comes.

Thank God I don't live in Alaska. Sorry, Mrs. Palin.

By golly - yes, we'll take it. My brain finally stops hurting when DST arrives.

Ahhh...
