Living on Standard Time

Happy Sunday, Everyone!  And Happy Back to Standard Time!




Rise, let us see you,
Dawning is the day,
Miss, misty meadow,
You will find your way,
Wake up in the morning to
yourself and leave this crazy
life behind you.
Listen, we're trying to find you.

Flow to the sea,
You know where to go,
Still we are free,
No one tells the wind which way to blow.

Wake up in the morning to yourself,
Open your eyes and start to be you.
Listen, we think we can see you.
Baby there's no price upon your head,
Sing it, shout it.
Now the angry words have all been said.
Do it, don't doubt it.

So rise, let us see you,
Dawning is the day,
Miss, misty meadow,
You will find your way,
Wake up in the morning to
yourself, open your head and
look around you.
Listen, we think we have found you.

  2. Happy Sunday Teresa. I like the video. I noticed the hidden faces at 3:48
    It's a chilly sunny autumn day here in northern Virginia.
    Have a great week!

  5. I still woke up before the sun came up, long before. I will eventually get used to the time change, but it will take awhile. I even went to bed later last night! :-)

  6. Miss, misty meadow...love this. I love the mist. I can see more clearly in the mist.
    This is a beautiful video and love the words. The Moody Blues are one of my favs. I have 'Nights in White Satin' in my favs playlist on iTunes. May have to add this one.

    1. I loved those words, too, and such great images! They remain among my favorites, too, always will.

  7. Their words are better than their music. I always get very disconcerted when the clocks go back!

    1. They wrote some great songs, didn't they? Poets, really.

      I always seem to look forward to its return. Oh Happy Day! :)

      Thanks, Jenny.

    1. What a treat that must have been. I've always wished I'd seen them at Red Rocks near Denver. They have a wonderful amalgamation of the best of pop with a touch of the classical, a sound all their own. Thanks, Steve.

  9. Time changes really mess around with my sense of everything temporal. Oh, its only a few days to adapt but I really, really don't get how this benefits anyone, anywhere!

    1. I don't seem to have trouble adapting, it's just that it seems more like the natural flow of the planet and the universe to be on standard time, no added hour for the sake of buying consumer goods, as I see it. But, that's just me.... :)

  10. I agree. I don't know exactly what benefit we get from DST that warrants the shift we all have to make twice a year. I would be happy to just stay with ST and leave it be. But I did like getting that extra hour this morning!

    1. I have always preferred standard time. It seems more natural somehow. Extra time is always nice... :)

  11. Dear Teresa, I have appreciated the Moody Blues and their compositions. So thank you for today's poem/song. Election day is near. It is dawning and I find myself scared about the outcome. Peace.

    1. It seems we human beings are not done with the lessons we must learn, individually and collectively, and so we march on facing them as best we can and, hopefully, finding peace within our own lives.

      I wish you peace no matter the outcome.
