Some Thoughts on Change


this morning, at breakfast, Carter wondered why it was still rather dark

Carter: Why are we eating so early today?
Me: It’s Daylight Savings Time now. We set the clocks ahead an hour so that it’s light later in the evening.
Carter: But why’s it dark?
Me: What happens is we move the clock ahead an hour and that hour… it kind of goes *poof!* and it never is. The clock does it while you’re asleep.
Carter: They took an hour from me?
Me: Well. Yeah, I guess. I mean, not just you, buddy. But oh, hey—you get it back next fall. After Halloween we get the hour back.
Carter: Like I’m even going to want it anymore then.
