Time is Broken, or  It’s all about Time

Time is broken?   No,  this is not about the annual frenzy of setting clocks back to Standard Time from Daylight Saving time and vice versa—or is it?  There are enough people in North America already,  complaining and totally annoyed because time is broken, swearing at the foolishness of arbitrary fiddling with billions of clocks that should be left to tick happily.  acting like zombie corporate slaves in doing so. Clocks know what they’re doing, don’t they?

 Here at IncomingBytes we’re Canadian and refuse to comply with arbitrary commandeered authority. Why sure, we’ll be different. Sixty seconds is still one minute, isn’t it?  By the way, have you changed YOUR clocks?

Getting back to reality. Dragging our heels, we changed our clocks  only because we like that extra hour of sleep, but we  bitched  complained about it too.  Loudly. Genuine Canuck complaining. It seems to me therein lies the only satisfaction in changing clocks and pretending that time is broken, other than the extra hour of sleep on this occasion, since it’s ‘fall-back’ time.  The joy experienced in complaining when time is broken. Expressing one’s self in genuine Canadian is essential.  Lowering the blood pressure, leaping into snowbanks and all that.  No matter.

We think getting up with the sun is more natural. Try it.  Early in the summer, later in the fall, and even later in the winter. Maybe never.  Hibernate.  Isn’t that logical?   Why be dictated to by corporate  tick-tocks, buzzers, timers and radio-clocks, digital or wind-up? Yes, it’s all about time. It’s about time.  Let’s rebel. No more clock-changing. Think about it.

Change is not in our  nature. Why change nature? Is time really broken?

  1. Oh that time change! Yes, I changed the clocks in my home but my mind is still thinking an hour off! Canadian reflections from Ray are always worth the read!!

    • Christyb, I’m guessing you have to re-set the internal clock as well as the mechanical/electronic types. It takes me a week or two to adjust. It makes me edgy, it is SO unnatural to change the time. My solution? I get up with the sun anyway. “:) I hope you adjust well and keep smiling, and thank you for commenting . “:) ~R
