There is a long but informative article on the effects of light on seasonal mood swings over on the Washington Post…
Seeing the Light of Day
Oh, the light! The autumn light! Is there anything more glorious than an October day, awash in the sun’s low-slung amber rays?
And yet . . . perhaps you feel the dread, too. The looming inkiness that, like the tide, crawls up your legs a little higher each day, turning that honeyed light to molasses and molasses to muck until you realize, too late, that the birds have left and the world has gone dark. Dark when you wake up, dark when you go home.
If you are one of those affected by the seasonal onslaught of depression, the article could supply some insights. It also may give us all a reason to tell Congress to quit messing with our body’s clock…
Time to run now that I spent my morning freely on the article above and reading the rest of my mail and news.
