It was already so much darker between the hour of 6:30 to 7 this evening.
That’s because this was our first night of non-Daylight Savings Time, after our clocks moved back one hour very early this morning.
I have written about this before. And so it surprised me that yet again, I gladly welcomed the end of Daylight Savings for another year.
This time last year, “I almost welcomed it”… those were my words. And obviously, I was grateful, grateful for the opportunity to hibernate like a bear and do nothing but sleep, eat, and write.
But this year, I wholeheartedly and vigorously embrace the darkness.
And it’s simply to do with the fact that I just need a break. I just need to slow down. I want to turn our attentions inward, literally, into our house, and chill, and think, and re-design when we can, and enjoy our family time together.
Not necessarily at the beach… but we can still have fun looking at the beach, and waving to pretend pirates on ships far, far away on the horizon.
That’ll do just fine. Now, excuse me as I go to bed.
