Someone mentioned the other day that the solstice is in December and it will start getting lighter later after the 21st. I thought, "Aready? That was quick."
It feels good not to have my moods determined by the light outside or lack of it. I'm not sure what's changed or if I've done anything differently, but it sure is nice.
Instead of turning lights on at night, I've been behind my family turning them off. No sooner do I turn a light off, it gets turned back on and left on. I spend my evenings wandering through the house turning lights off.
Maybe the vampire phenomenon, not that I'm particularly into it, has shed new light (pun intended) on the darkness. Or maybe it's because I'm writing more, it's better than therapy and cheaper too.
