SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
As writers, we tend to be sensitive sorts and for me, that's nowhere more apparent than Winter. I am a Spring -- both in colors and nature. I'm happy, not yet the full bloom of summer (read: acts childish) and winter just feels never-ending. And this is California!
On the advice of another writer, I got myself a sun lamp to combat the winter blahs, but my brain isn't fooled. It wants sun. It wasn't to be outside, preferably in a convertible or running in the hills, but it's too muddy. I don't remember it raining this hard since the early 80's. It's been consistent and nauseating.
Last night, I worked out until my legs were ready to fall off and that worked for a short time, but today, again, I'm ready to hop a plane to Hawaii. What do you do to ward off the winter in your life?
