I love that everyone is doing all this thoughtful, inspirational Reverb10 posting. I’d almost like to participate, but I feel like I have been pinned down by these short dark days, praying for the solstice to swing by and bring back the light.
I’m a winter wimp. I live in a relatively southern location where it barely gets a hint of cold. Heavens to Murgatroyd, I have BANANA trees growing outside my window. With bananas on them.
Don’t tell me to get a light box. I have a light box that I am supposed to use for the 2 hours after it gets dark, say from 5 to 7 pm.
Anyone who actually has a life might find that funny. Oh, yes, those quiet hours from 5 to 7 pm when one can just pause and sit and let a blue light shine on them instead of drive home or go to the gym or do errands or make dinner. Not gonna happen.
Every year I say it isn’t going to be that bad. Every year until November 20 or so, when it hits like a ton of dark.
People says Jesus is the reason for the season, but me – I’m just living for the Solstice, waiting for the daylight to come back to me.
