Was it forward or backwards… shit. I don’t only miss his writing , I also miss him as a person. I miss you John.

Tonight or Sunday morning, to be precise, the clock goes back one hour at four to three.
Wrong again, thank you Paul Chabanne. The dawn will be earlier. And sunrise too ! So shorter light in the evening and more light when you get up !
