The Clock Has Stopped In The Night. [May. 28th, 2018|11:56 am]
Tony Grist
I wind the clocks on Sunday- only sometimes I forget it's Sunday.

In the olden days you went to church on a Sunday which made Sunday different and you didn't forget to wind the clocks. Of all the reasons for going to church this was probably the best.

Yesterday was the middle day of a Bank holiday weekend and we had children and a grandchild rushing round playing frisbee and hide and seek or sauntering around admiring the garden and cheating at croquet- and it was all rather breathtakingly wonderful- and not like a normal Sunday at all- and I forgot to wind the clocks.

Ailz usually gives me verbal digs about winding the clocks and even she forgot about them.

Never mind, the sun got up anyway. I think the birds must have woken him.

And that's the beauty of it. The sun stays on its path even without clocks.

(And it sounds like a wonderful Sunday and one just made for forgetting about clocks!)

Our ancestors managed without them. If you're a farmer all you really need to do is keep track of the sun- on a seasonal and daily basis. Who needs a clock when they've got a stone circle?
