Time Being

I did not get a chance on Saturday to post this picture, as the third annual pre-clock change early morning Saturday sky (see also here and here). I'm happy that it was once again a different kind of day - rain was on the way.

This morning was a bit of a shock to the system - I realised that we were waking up at the equivalent of the time people usually get up at Tassajara, and it did feel like being untimely ripped from a warm and comfortable bed. I had trouble staying awake in zazen, and from some slightly heavier rhythmic breathing along the tan, I suspect I was not the only one. I noticed that the first period was especially quiet - as if the people usually driving down Oak at that time were also deciding to sleep on.

It doesn't happen for another fortnight by which time I will be on dry land and not have to worry about it.
I don't like it happening here - I get up to early for my liking anyway without loosing an hour. Also I use my mobile phone as an alarm clock out here (it's doing nothing else any way - the nearest mast is a hundred miles away and you never know if it's going to compensate for the extra hour before you start fiddling with the time)

There would be nothing worse than getting up two hours early when you don't need to....
