Ah, the “fall back” – setting time back one hour – it means that Fall/Winter has officially arrived, to my mind. It’s when things Get Real!
Of course, in a perfect world, we wouldn’t be tinkering with our clocks at all…on the other hand, maybe we should consider it a blessing that we aren’t told to set our clocks back 10 minutes each month for six months, and forward 10 minutes each month for the next six months, in order to avoid the abruptness of the one-hour shift twice a year.
OK, enough talking – it’s time (LITERALLY, with two meanings!!!) for a wonderfully appropriate song that always pops into my head on this day: “The Bird” the the Time.
And do you know WHY this song is appropriate on this day?
