“Because if we can rearrange time, we can do anything we please”


James A. Reeves:

Ohio. Another summer day in November, but I’m delighted because the sun went down an hour earlier tonight. It’s such a beautiful thing, this seasonal reminder that we can tinker with the rules. The end of Daylight Savings Time is my favorite holiday because it brings the night closer. And if you’re staying at a motel, you get a free hour. And here I return to what has become my annual appeal, perhaps even an invocation:

Changing the clocks should be the year’s biggest celebration with fireworks, parades, and gift-giving. Because if we can rearrange time, we can do anything we please. Invent new colors. Add more days to the week. Rewind the internet to 2005. Erase the borders on maps and replace money with hugs.

I really like this idea. Too much of the world is gripped by the tyranny of We’ve Always Done It This Way.
