Let’s Just Leave the Clocks Alone, Eh?

We are all time travelers. The catch is, we can only travel in one direction through time and at one speed. Oh there are those that say we can adjust the speed of our time travel by accelerating ourselves to near the speed of light. But that takes so much energy as to be practically impossible.

My Maltipoo puppy says that time moves slower when she’s waiting for daddy to come home from work. But that’s just her perception. How would you know if the speed that time passed changed from moment to moment? Time seems to move faster as we get older but that is just because we measure time relative to the length of time that we’ve been alive. The longer you’ve been alive, the shorter a minute seems.

Right now, it seems like it is taking me way too long to get to the point. My bed calls me. The change to daylight savings time looms. I wish we’d stay on the same time year round. I don’t understand why people can’t just get up earlier if they want to take advantage of more daylight. There’s really no excuse to make the rest of us suffer.

I think the American Indians had the right idea. The got up when the woke up. They went to bed when they were tired. They did everything on a relaxed schedule. Things took however long they took. There was no sense in worrying about being late. What difference would a few minutes more or less matter in the grand scheme of things.

Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
