It’s perhaps a Saturn thing. There are a lot of planets in Aquarius right now and many of them have just moved on from Capricorn, also ruled by Saturn. I feel like my sense of time is all jumbled at present. There are things that seem forever ago – that are not and things that are unexpectedly sudden, that have taken a long time in reality.
This song, from the 90s, popped into my head tonight and it took a while to find it but I’m glad I did. This CD was a favourite that I’d forgotten.
I can’t shake this sense that things aren’t happening fast enough. The time is passing very fast, perhaps that’s where all the speed is.
I put a photo of our #getsunflowered project on my Facebook page last night. When the sunflowers were there, I was so focussed on getting the courtyard finished, I didn’t stop and smell the sunflowers nearly enough. I’m glad I took photos.
A learning experience.
See those tall sunflowers in the photo – that is the patch where we had the compost from the last crop. Photographic evidence – composting works. They grew faster, taller and there were more flowers in that patch.
It was a rough start to the work week for me today. The students noticed the clock reading quarter to eight and we all sat around in homeroom in a bit of a daze, imagining that just a week ago, we’d have had an extra hour in bed. We never considered we’d have gone to bed an hour earlier as well.
Having the delightful time at camp last week, meant catching up with my other classes and the notices and such that go on when you are out for three days. I noticed a few others were dragging their feet a little also around me. Sometimes we just have days like these I guess.
I do love daylight savings though. I have always looked forward to those extra daylight hours that give the impression of more time. Perhaps it is more useful time. I’m not sure. History tells me I will come to like it.
The one year I wasn’t a fan was when I was cutting asparagus for a season. We began work at sunrise and daylight savings effectively meant finishing an hour later.
All in all though, there are still 24 hours in the day. No matter how it feels.
