From The Trail

The Circadian Rhythm.

Beware it's mesmerizing beat. I'm marching to it's drum these days. It has a catchy, groovy kind of tune that's hard to resist. But oh do I try to resist, really I do. But it's powerful stuff folks.

Let me explain it to you this way. If I were a sunflower. I would awaken to the rising sun and then oscillate towards it's setting, nod my little head, and wait for it to rise again tomorrow, repeat.

Wikipedia states that the Circadian Rhythm "is a roughly 24 hr. cycle in the biochemical, physiological or behavioural processes of living entities on Earth." (this would explain the cocktail hour).

The Circadian Rhythms are built in and self-sustained. They adjust to the environment by external cues called
zeitgebers, the primary one which is daylight.

See, I'm not crazy, the
zeitgebers are out to get me!
