"It's hard convincing yourself that where you are at the moment is your home, and it's not always where your heart is. Sometimes I win and sometimes not."

She was like an article in a magazine one only needed to skim to get the gist of. An old boyfriend remarked the trailer of her life was the best part of her movie.

Having lived half a century you would think one would have adjusted to it by now, but for some ridiculous reason I am forever bothered by the change to or from Daylight Savings Time. I know, it’s only an hour one way or the other and always falls conveniently on a Sunday when most people have nothing to do. But it still discombobulates me for a few days after it’s happened. I’ll look at the clock and some strident voice inside says, “It’s THAT late?” or “I have a whole hour to kill before I go? I thought it was time.” The sky is too bright for that time of evening, or too dark for that time of morning. Small annoyances, like having no hat when it starts to rain, no milk for the coffee, the car alarm out on the street that doesn’t stop screaming even after minutes, the extra hour or the lost hour that you thought belonged to you but doesn’t.

To his great surprise and delight at a late age he fell madly in love with his life. But too late. It had waited so long for him to wake up and see its value that by the time he did, it had given up on him. Long before he realized its greatness, it had moved on.
