Here Comes the Sun (an Hour Earlier Than Yesterday)

Daylight Saving Time1 kicked in yesterday, and lots of people seem upset. I’m not one of them. I time my runs with the sunrise, and an earlier start means I won’t be late for work. Ergo, I won’t have to give up sights like this — the blue hour from this morning:

Blue Hour, Bayshore Boulevard, Tampa, USA

And I actually appreciate the earlier evenings. Nighttime is intimate, personal, and reflective.

This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best,
Night, sleep, death and the stars.

“A Clear Midnight” by Walt Whitman
