I am light greedy. I admit it. But I can’t help it. It’s a long, dark winter here in Stockholm, but now we finally have long days of light. But I will be missing out on the long light for two weeks while I travel to the US. That sonds very petty of me, doesn’t it? But if you haven’t been through a winter here, you just can’t understand my anxiety. Rationally, I know that I will have a great time seeing family and friends. But the light-deprived part of me still feels a bit cheated. You see, the sky is light here around 3.30 in the morning. And there’s still a beautiful pink light in the sky at 10.30 pm. What this means is that the night is not very long this time of year and I absolutely love that. I need that. It’s my payback for all the dark of winter. So that’s why I feel just a little bit grumpy about giving up my long hours of daylight, even if it’s just for two weeks.
