I love shifting to DST. I love leaving work when it's still light out--and maybe even having some light by the time I get home.
I enjoy the early-morning light on the hills on the way in to work. And on the way home, I've been enjoying something else: noticing the shadows.
On the drive home, the sun is pretty much directly behind us at first. (No, it's not my multiple personality disorder acting up--I either take a bus or ride with a neighbor. So the plural is appropriate. :-) ) It may shift a bit here and there, but we start out going pretty much due east.
Then we hit the hills.
Sometimes the shadow of the car is still in front of us. Sometimes it's to the side. And sometimes... we're driving straight into the sun. Yup--the long and winding road does get us home--but sometimes we seem to be moving in completely the wrong direction first.
Just something to keep in mind, during those times when we feel like we're doing everything right, but the scale isn't moving. Or times when we're pretty sure we got turned around somehow--but we're still moving.
I've been doing pretty well with walking the dogs in the morning *and* getting to my ride on time. My Facebook time is suffering, but I think I can safely rely on someone else to forward all the really cool stuff George Takei posts....
