only a matter of time…..
“patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”

(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.
‘drawing on my fine command of the english language, i said nothing.”

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
