Words to Consider

  • I bind myself today to the Holy Powers: Their hands to guide me, Their wisdom to teach me, Their ears to hear me, Their words to give me speech, my heart always to love Them. —Galina Krasskova
  • "Not to hurt our humble brethren in fur, feather or fin, is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission: to be of service to them whenever they require it.” ~Francis of Assisi
  • Tikkun Olam (roughly translated, I understand, as Heal the World)
    “It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work, but neither are you at liberty to desist from it.” –Rabbi Tarfon.
  • "And the Bastard grant us, in our direst need, the smallest gifts: the nail of the horseshoe, the pin of the axle, the feather at the pivot point, the pebble at the mountain's peak, the kiss in despair, the one right word. In darkness, understanding." -- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • "There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious-makes you so sick at heart-that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
  • "They tell us that we live in a great free republic; that our institutions are democratic; that we are a free and self-governing people. That is too much, even for a joke. ... Wars throughout history have been waged for conquest and plunder... And that is war in a nutshell. The master class has always declared the wars; the subject class has always fought the battles." —Eugene Victor Debs
  • i do it for the joy it brings / because i am a joyful girl / because the world owes me nothing / and we owe each other the world / i do it because it's the least i can do / i do it because i learned it from you / i do it just because i want to / because I want to —"Joyful Girl", Ani DiFranco
  • "Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life." - Elizabeth Goudge, author of The Joy of the Snow

Sigrdrifa's Prayer

  • Hail to the Day / Hail to Day’s Sons / Hail to the Night and her Daughters / With loving eyes look upon us here / And bring victory to those who have gathered / Hail to the gods / Hail to the goddesses / Hail to the mighty, fecund Earth / Eloquence and native wit bestow on us / And healing hands while we live

Oh I don't agree! OK, in the Spring it feels a little harsh to wake up and find out you've lost an hour's sleep, but the luxury in Autumn of staying in bed for an extra hour WITHOUT GUILT is so worth it!
Our clocks don't change here until the end of March.


Not to mention the hour of sleep or study we lost, right in the middle of finals!!!

I am in the choir, singing "Amen, sister!" This is the time of year that I almost wished I lived in Arizona or some some other sensible, non-DST place.


I live in AZ, which blessedly does not observe daylight savings time. Even on summer solstice, when the sun rises sometime around 4:30 am, I'm happier than ever I was living in Illinois, where I could never figure out if I spring forward and fall back, or spring back and fall forward. Your sentiments echoed here!

This reminds me of when I first started working for Progressive Farmer magazine (in the 70s). A lady called our gardening editor and was having a fit because the sun was burning up her tomato plants. "That's what your daylight savings time has done," she said.


I LOATHE DST! In my humble opinion, it's just one MORE way human beings decide they are more savvy than nature. Bah! And one more way the 'system' decides things FOR us. NOT that I ever 'celebrated' either Washington's or Lincoln's birthdays, but I do at least remember when they were NOT lumped into a mandatory Monday 'Presidents' Day' designed to give federal workers another holiday. You know, even though the Disney movie, "Pocohantas" was HIDEOUS, I liked one song so much. Lines from that particular song come to mind: "You think you own whatever land you land on; that Earth is just a dead thing you can claim ..." Daylight Saving Time - I say LIGHTS OUT on that!


This is the first time I have totally approved of the change. :<) However, I am in the fortunate position of being able to sleep that hour away in the morning, and am so, so enjoying the long evenings. They are just the ticket this time of year when we still have snow and cold temps. I've never been a fan of the change, but how I'm loving this one!
