Interrupted Beginnings

Normally on Sundays we do beginnings – taking a look at the openings of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. But today time is on my mind, due to the clock change. Why are we doing this? One extra hour of sleep on one morning in exchange for months of too-soon nightfalls? (An extra hour of sleep that did not happen here, by the way, due to my failure to issue a heads-up to Audrey and Pearl, who awoke at their usual time.)

Here, from Heart of Barkness, a little bit on the subject of time.

Meanwhile Rick stepped on the gas and we sped away from his place, where I’d been staying for what seemed like a long time. That was a worrisome thought. I tend to stay away from worrisome thoughts, like to spend my time in the here and now.
