(image source) "Satori (悟り?) (Chinese: 悟; pinyin: wù; Korean 오) is a Japanese Buddhist term for "enlightenment." The word literally means "understanding." "Satori" translates as a flash of sudden awareness, or individual enlightenment..." From Wikipedia, of course. I had a moment of satori a while ago that the waning twilight will occur at 7:45 tomorrow, rather than 6:45. We "spring forward" into daylight savings time tonight, which means at this time tomorrow, it will be an hour later than it is now.

I also had a moment of Satori, as I was writing this up, that this would be a good time to put an end to this foolishness. A better time to quit might have been with Saturd80's, but you know... well, no excuses. Sorry.
