time diversion I
March is already here. The month heralding Spring, officially: March 20th – Spring Equinox.
However this series of posts was triggered by an ‘unfortunate’ [to me at least] event.
An event that takes place every year on the last Sunday of March [in our part of the world] and returns to its blessed normality on the last Sunday of October.
It is called D.S.T. [Daylight Saving Time] and this year it is March 26.
Almost every year I whine about it one way or another. This year however I thought of taking a different approach. Celebrate the hours until we finally lose one on the 26th.
Not making sense? Well, when time switches to D.S.T. we lose one hour as the clocks move forward one hour. I’ve even done a tribute to that poor lost hour, see here.
So under the title “Time Diversion’, I’ll be posting clocks I’ve designed using my original artwork. I hope you enjoy and -to those of you who feel the same way- make the transition a little more tolerable!
I thought it appropriate to begin with March,
so here is my March clock or:
