It has started already. Daylight hours are rapidly declining and it is getting dark around 7.30. It is making me yawn early in the evening, even though I am getting plenty of sleep. Conversely, the light is waking me up at 5ish. That will all be ending soon too, though.
You would think I would be used to this descent into darkness by now. But I am not. Yikes. Part of me wonders if I can take another dark winter. It scares me how quickly I notice the declining daylight and the effect it has on me. And that is in spite of the fact that the weather has been quite sunny for the last several days. All this darkness just can’t be good for me. After all, Swedish children have to take vitamin D supplements for the first years of their lives.
I think it may be time to book a winter getaway to the southern hemisphere. I need to pull out my energy light. And for now, I need to get out into the sunshine. Maybe I need to take a cue from two of my neighbors who are already sunning themselves in their underwear on their balconies. And it is only 10 am.
