~Time Zones~

Time Zones – love them, hate them, don’t care….

We have been traveling in Eastern Time Zone for the last 5 months. My body and mind doesn’t fully enjoy being in this Time Zone. I try, really I do!

Everything is late:

`Get up late

`Go to bed late

`Eat late

`Even Happy Hour is late

Howard feels the same. When we wake up in the morning first thing he says is, “We’re late!” And, so the day goes. {grins}

Let me say, before I have people upset with me, this feeling of befuddlement has absolutely nothing to do with anyone, nor the towns, cities and states we visit. Instead it has everything to do with how my mind and body functions outside of its tranquil Time Zone.

As we head west, toward one of the magical, dotted, Time Zone, lines, I can feel slight tingles. My body is tingling with anticipation at being closer to my perfect Time Zone.

Entering the Central Time Zone gets me a little closer. After spending the first 33 years of my life in the Central Time Zone you would think I would be fine. Its better than Eastern, but doesn’t put my mind and body in a total blissful state.

Having lived almost 29 years in the Perfect Time Zone, I look forward to being back there and having my mind and body once again in harmony. One would wonder, if living in the Perfect Time Zone, why would I want to ever leave?

I guess the answer is, to see the people whom I love dearly, and to experience the beauty of the towns, cities and states that just happen to be outside the perfect Time Zone boundaries.

As I get closer to crossing the final, magical, dotted, Time Zone line, I will let you know. Deep within my heart and soul there will be joy, and calm will replace the befuddlement.

Gosh, can’t wait until this weekend, oh the joy of daylight saving time. Just when I thought I had a handle on this Time Zone stuff.

 

I bet this Snowy Egret wishes he was in another Time Zone.

 Until next time, I hope you are in your “comfort” Time Zone!
