It's All Relative

"Is it tomorrow? Or today?"

"Do you mean my tomorrow or your tomorrow? Because I'm living your tomorrow, today."

"What time is it there? Oh, it's your morning. That's right. I forgot."

"If he arrives midnight Wednesday, is that tonight, Tuesday, or Wednesday?"


So relative, right?

Relative to zone and schedule and calendar and mindset.

I've missed a time or two blogging this month. To post for the 21st, which this morning was many of my readers' middle of the night, I should have published by noon. But people. But questions. But meetings and plans sometimes don't operate on a schedule or in their calendared spaces.


Am writing.

Shout out to the team at Two Writing Teachers for hosting the 11th annual
Slice of Life Story Challenge. Magic happens when teachers who teach writing,
write themselves. Joins us. Link up everyday in March or on Tuesdays throughout the year.


  1. I was actually wondering about the time difference with you just yesterday! I have still been thinking about your grade post a couple of days ago. I was going to see if you were on Voxer (because that has now become one of my favorite ways to talk to teachers!) and ask you about that post, but I didn't want it to be in the middle of the night. Now, that you have written this post...I still don't know! Ha!

    1. I have not Voxed in a while, but it is a great tool for just such conversations. I keep my phone on silent and out of the bedroom, so no worries about waking me up. We are exactly twelve hours ahead of the U.S. (EST), perhaps eleven hours if you are central time.

  2. I always struggle with this time piece. Twitter has certainly made me more aware of the difference, but it is still a challenge I face. Determining timezones in the US is one challenge, but adding dates and a world lens makes it even trickier. Thank goodness for our phones. I usually just change the clock on my iPhone to find out what I need to know.
