God gave us a crisp, sun-filled autumn afternoon for back yard patio dwelling on this last day of DST.  Tonight we’ll roll the clocks back an hour in this annual ritual observed the first weekend of each November.


A lovely last-afternoon of DST  isn’t a fittting trade-off for the next 6 months of shortened days.

An extra hour of sleep tonight may be the only joy in the time transition since tomorrow evening begins the depressing  season of shortened days as we head into the winter gloom  of early sunsets.  Our daze will be far too short for the next six months without our cherished late -afternoon sun—-Gloom, despair, and agony untold as we wait for spring!
