Hawaii Standard Time

A  l  o  h  a !

 Open Skies?

"Go forth under the open sky,
and listen To Nature's teachings."

William C. Bryant

 Nice beach day!

“The only reason for time

is so that everything doesn't happen

at once.”



walking out for the day. . . 

"Hope is like a road in the country;
there was never a road,
but when many people walk on it,
the road comes into existence. "

Lin Yutang


. . . Returning home again

"This melancholy London -
I sometimes imagine that the souls of the lost 
are compelled to walk through its streets perpetually.
One feels them passing
like a whiff of air. "

William Butler Yeats


HST? What's that?
Hawaiian Standard Time.
We live 10 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time
This time of year,
when most of the continental USA is on
Daylight Saving Time,
we are 6 hours behind New York,
3 hours behind San Francisco
By the time we begin our workday,
it is afternoon back east.
So much for beating the competition!
In Hawaii we tend to rise early,
and go to bed early;
but when visiting New York
our internal clock
makes us night owls!
Feels like noon to me!

This wrinkle in time
has taken much stress out of watching
"live" events since 9-11.
By the time I see it
we know there has been no terrorism.
Mondays during football season
a lot of Honolulu fans slip out of the office
to watch the Monday Night Game
in real-time (afternoon) at a sports bar.
On occasion, one of us gets a call
from a clueless person far away.
Because it is 10am where they are
they never realize that it is only
4am here!

Till we inform them,
and go back to sleep!

          Do YOU know what time it is? (LOL) cloudia
