Holy Day

The time changed last night. The end of Daylight Savings Time is my favorite holiday because it creates more night. And if you’re staying at a motel, you get a free hour. Changing the clocks should be the biggest holiday of all because it’s a glorious reminder that if we can rearrange time, we can do whatever we want: Reorganize the alphabet. Invent new colors. Add more days to the week. Replace money with hugs. While we’re at it, let’s turn the clocks back to a Saturday night in 1977 and write a different future. It’s such a beautiful thing, to collectively tinker with our fictions and rules.
