The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotations.


Just out the front. East Derwent Highway, Geilston Bay. March 2011.

The photo shows late afternoon in Geilston as the sun makes a last hurrah before the shift back from Daylight Saving kicks us all in the guts.

I enjoy Daylight Saving. There is something about arriving home from work with a little bit of sunshine that puts a spring in your step. Conversely, leaving home for work in the dark, and arriving home from work in the dark, can be a little demoralising. What’s been the point of the day if all you have to show for it are the fruits of wage slavery?

I dislike it most when I emerge from the innards of the office... blinking and covering my eyes from the strange glowing orb in the sky with the cool/warm breeze caressing my dry, parched skin!
I am luckier than you I think though, as I arrive home maybe one or two minutes later! Just in time to spend the remaining minutes of the dying daylight cooking dinner and putting the washing on! Oh the joy!

I too will miss the extra daylight when I get home.
I am in wet and storm battered Queensland at present and don't have the advantage of daylight saving.
I am presently sitting waiting to arrive in Brisbane somewhere around 3 am. What joy it would be to actually tie this ship up in daylight.
My day should end somewhere around 5 am.
That was yesterday! Today starts again at 8 am.
I hope you can figure that out!

Sue, it's cruel. It generally takes me at least 45 minutes to get home though (depending on the buses).

Roddy, poor old Queensland.

No. I actually think it is the peoples fault. Somehow I don't think we should have tampered with nature.
