Re: SAD and Life

It used to get me down too but I think your frame of mind has a lot to do with it.  This weekend, I went out and soaked up the sun while I could, and when it gets dark I put a fire in my chiminea and enjoy the early evening.  I have to feed the animals in the dark when I get home from work, but after that, I do artwork, beadwork, or some other thing that I enjoy and don't dwell on it as much.  I have really, really tried to not let little things get me down anymore.  This last year I've had so many deaths of people that I know and care about - that my perspective on life has changed.  Life is short, and can be stressful, but it's beautiful too - and short.  Enjoy it while you can.  And that yin/yang thing is true - you have to take the good with the bad, you have light and darkness and you just have to balance the two.  I love Khalil Gibran and one of the things he wrote was "Joy and sorrow are inseparable..together they come and when one sits alone with you..remember that
 the other is alseep upon your bed."  I used to get so sad when the gardening season ended, but now I look at it as a break from the work, and a time to plan for next year.  Hope springs a kernal :-)

excited about the return of the light at Solstice, and going to bed early 
with a good book. I must be a very boring person. :o)
