The slow and steady progress of the seasons never ceases to amaze! Way back on Januay 16th -- seven weeks ago! -- my friend Steven posted the cheering news:
Spring's on its way!"
Not long after that, it was 6pm. Then, only last week, without even realizing that Daylight Saving Time was so near, I observed a few rays of fading sunlight lingering until as late as 7pm. Gradually, without doing a thing, we had gained two entire hours of evening light since the year's beginning!
Next thing you know, we Spring Forward and the very next night, it will be light until 8pm -- and not even offically Spring for another week! Of course, and somewhat sadly, the evening's gain is the morning's loss. I have never really understood the so - called advantage. Just be patient for another few weeks, and the extra hour will accrue naturally as we gain a few moments of light each and every day -- no intervention required.
