What Time Is It?

There are two songs that come to mine this morning. One is “Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down” by the Carpenters and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” by Chicago.  I have survived this morning’s rainy commute. Driving in the rain always makes me nervous because I once had a very serious car accident on a rainy day on the very road I drive on each day to work. Then there’s the whole subject of time. Time is like a river. Twice a year we get to manipulate the flow of time with something called daylight savings time. During these times we get to go around our homes and reset all our clocks. It is probably in my mind but when we do this in the spring it takes me a week or two to adjust to the reality that I am getting up an hour earlier. It seems like a small thing but I believe it upsets my inner clock. I do like the extra daylight at the end of the day. By the end of winter I always feel like I am suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. Even though winters are generally mild in Kentucky the dreary, overcast days sometimes get to me. I don’t mind the cold as much as the dreariness. I had a busy weekend with little downtime so I am not quite ready for a new week. The time change and the pouring rain do not help. I am sure many of you are feeling the same way. To make the transition a little easier, let’s declare today a crisis free day. This applies to all real and imaginary crisis’s. Let’s consider today a transitional day where we all adjust to the new flow of time. By the end of the week we will forget that the time “changed”.
