Saving daylight…

When I travel I rarely adjust my watch to the new time zone.  I just try and adjust my thinking.  Mostly I travel East and need only adjust by an hour forward – this is accomplished easily enough – +1…I have it mastered.

But darn it if it isn’t daylight savings time this weekend – the time when we spring forward.  Which means that I need to +1 and spring forward if I am out East; hence, I would be at +2.  That seems do-able…no need to go through the profound effort of resetting my watch for such a simple math calculation.

Alas, I am not in the East.  I am in the West which means -2 and +1…which equals -1 right?  Well, -1 if I don’t adjust my watch for North Dakota daylight savings time.  So no adjustment and I am -1, an adjustment and I am -2 .  So if I adjust to North Dakota daylight savings time (and am at -1) am I then acquiring another hour???  More daylight based on my watch…is that how it works?

Oh dear…this is mighty confusing for such a simple mind and while I am trying to figure this out daylight is burning – the old daylight we aren’t concerned with saving, but daylight nonetheless.   And since daylight is allowing me to gaze upon the ocean off the deck of a beach house I am thinking I will start saving my daylight early.

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
