Good morning Sunday Letter friends!
Did you remember to spring forward? Yay for MacBooks and iPhones and iPads that automatically adjust. Remember not that very long ago when that wasn’t the case? I don’t know about you, but before the cell phone became an extension of the hand, we had clocks all over the house. And we had to manually adjust each one either before we went to bed or throughout the next day.
What a process. The clock on the VCR was the trickiest!
When I was a sleep-deprived single mother of two working full-time at the bank, losing a whole hour was the most exhausting, humorless, pointless thing I could imagine. I didn’t buy off on the whole idea that its purpose was to conserve energy. Saving daylight had the opposite effect on me.
A very simple solution to this problem has always existed. Why not delay springing forward a few measly hours until 4:00 p.m. on Monday? If 4:00 suddenly became 5:00, employees would be giddy. The lost hour would be recouped in no time with increased productivity.
Anyway, on to a new week, one that moves us closer to spring.
