Nov. 1, 2020The Magic of One Hour
I wake before the alarm to a brighter sky than yesterday's. My body feels better rested than usual. A day earlier I would have looked upon the raised clock hand in shame, but the magic of one hour saves me from the guilt.
People like regularity but nature is always on the move. If we cannot alter the course of the earth's revolution, we find a way to alter the agreed divisions of day and night. The promise of one hour's magic vitalizes bodies and sharpens minds. It keeps the lazy winter sun from oversleeping.
