Daylight savings: what if Autumn never comes back again?


It is 11:05pm…in less than an hour we will all lose an hour; that absurd concept that no longer serves a purpose anyone can clearly articulate. I am sufficiently annoyed and motivated at once about writing and so it is a good time to start this blog.

Above is all I could manage to write last night before I went to bed. Had to wake up very early; in fact planned on waking at 5:30am and take one of the cars to have the tires rotated. Since the time was already changed as a result of DST, it means when the alarm woke me it was–or would have been–4:30am, if it was yesterday. But, in our “homo sapiens” way we contort, try to bend and manipulate everything; including time. So, the place I woke up to told me it was 5:30am. Where did that one hour go? No one knows and no one really bothers to ask. This is mainly because we “think” we get it back when fall comes around next time and we “fall back” on the DST and get an “extra hour”. How is that an extra hour? It is something that was taken away, and someone–benevolently gives it back to us like a gift? Did we really have it though if it never came to pass? Makes no sense. Even more of concern is what happens if one dies before next fall season? Would one ever get that one lost hour back?

It took me about an hour to set up this blog and likely more to think up and draft this first post. What is the point? Life itself is the point; nothing else is really there. For some reason I decided my time was well spent in doing this–that is all.

Avery Mann

I am not any of the" Avery Mann"s who pop up when you Google the name; not the one who has written a couple of books...not the media executive...etc...etc. The following definitions were selected from Wikipedia or some such source--too many contradicting citations from other sources; might as well go with the one not known for scholarly accolades, but...used and cited most often: "Avery" is a given name taken from Avery, an English surname that was itself derived from an Old French version of the name Alfred or the Ancient Germanic name Alberich. The meaning of the name is derived from the Old English words aelf, meaning elf, and raed, meaning counsel. "Mann" is a surname of Germanic origin. The word means "man", "person", "husband". "ᛗ" is a single character (rune) in the traditional old-English, Anglo Saxon, runic alphabet, which denotes "Mann". "Mann" is also a surname of Jatt origin. Words, letters, all are just signs--intended to facilitate identification and then communication. That is the only sort of Avery or Mann that I chose to be.
