Prelude to turning the clocks back and a few extra zzzz's...

Stay with Standard time

NO on Proposition 7.
Just weighing in as someone who hates the disruption to the gentle ebb and flow of the continuous cycle of longer and shorter amounts of sunlight. Changing the clocks twice a year also prevents us from collectively experiencing a constant connection to this large planetary cycle - and by extension-- to one another.

So why NO? This proposition is for us to remain on Daylight Savings Time NOT Standard time. This means we will be out of sync with most of the world much of the time (many places do NOT change the clocks to Daylight Savings Time to begin with).
It also means that in another month, the sun will be rising at this latitude at 8:30 in the morning.
I believe a better option would be to remain on Standard Time all year (as does Arizona and Hawaii). All we would have to do would be to opt out of the change to Daylight Savings Time. The law is already set up for that.
I propose voting NO on 7 this time around and putting a Proposition on the next ballot to make Pacific Standard Time the permanent option for us.
