I'm a little behind on my daily post writing. There is a disadvantage to writing after the fact; I don' get as many readers. The clock is the first thing I look at when I wake up in the middle of the night. It usually says 4:00 AM or very close to that time. I get up for a few minutes to take care of business and to feed the cat so she won't wake me before I want to get up in the morning. I like to sleep late sometimes as late as 10:00 AM. I remember a time when the clock was not my friend. It was after my heart surgery. Time moved very slowly then. Another period of time when the hands of the clock moved very slowly was in my younger years during high school, especially during history class. Now I am much older, the hands of the clock move quickly, sometimes more quickly than I would like. In reality the speed of the hands of the clock moving around the dial is no different now than it was then. I is my perception of time that has changed. What is the saying? "time flies when you're having fun".
