(a highly-compensated re-enactor above,
showing my expression and hair at sign-in)
while signing-in at the salon
i asked the receptionist
what the date was
to which she replied,
“oh, let me look. it changes every day. this keeps happening.”
i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.

and once again
daylight savings time comes to an end.
for the time being.
“do not think that time simply flies away. do not understand “flying” as the only function of time. if time simply flew away, a separation would exist between you and time. so if you understand time as only passing, then you do not understand the time being. to grasp this truly, every being that exists in the entire world is linked together as moments in time, and at the same time they exist as individual moments of time. because all moments are the time being, they are your time being.”
― 13th-century Zen master Dogen Zenji, as quoted by ruth ozeki – A Tale for the Time Being

wondering what they once led to
and how much time has been lost
since they led anyone there?

a clock that forces you to do math to find out the time
The Albert Clock is no simple timepiece. In fact, it requires you to think pretty hard. It will tell you the time of day, but only if you can do the math to read it, as Nerdist reports.
Designed by the Paris-based Axel Schindlbeck, the clock is meant to be a mental workout, providing the mathematical calisthenics you need to keep your number skills sharp. It’s technically designed for classrooms and kids, but adults need to practice their multiplication tables regularly, too.
The digital clock has four different levels to help you ramp up your addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division abilities over time. For a real challenge, you can program it to change equations more often than every minute, so you’re presented with a new time-telling puzzle every 10 seconds.
The wall-mounted clock retails for about $300, but you can also download a mobile version of the design for free. It will make you yearn for the simplicity of analog clocks in no time.
