Soakin’ In Sunshine


How exactly does time expand when daylight hours stretch into the evening? I came home last night, grabbed a bite to eat, walked the dog, played in my garden and edited a video for the blog (stay tuned). I gave no thought to even slowing down until about 10:30 p.m.

The darkness somehow pushes me on the couch toward a jumbo box of cereal – any kind will do – and a gallon of milk to wrap up a day. Am I really affected that much by the daylight? Have any of you ever used sun lamps or other items to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder?

Would a little sunshine the last two months made an impact on the way my jeans feel today? I certainly don’t want to make excuses, nor do I need to voluntarily admit to yet one more neurosis, but damn the past few days have certainly found me in a better mood.

The rays feel intoxicating at times, and I don’t know if it is simply because I have been without them, or I’m emerging from a funk of another kind. Regardless it feels good, albeit a little concerning that the first song that popped into my mind was one from John Denver. Maybe I’m not out of the dark yet.

Spring in central Ohio still offers quite a bit of challenge before giving way to bright days filled with lots of green, but I’m soakin’ it up while I can.
