Sometimes I slide into a bit of a doldrum this time of year. This morning's sunrise reminded me a bit of what it can be like when one is feeling low. You know that there is something good out there, behind the clouds. You might even see a tiny glimmer of it, as if through a crack in a wall. But the full power of the glorious glow is obstructed.
Still - there are always bits of beauty to be found. I love the geometric patterns that form from ice and snow on rolling landscapes.
My very kind editor allowed me leeway to write about something different this week. So I was indulged in exploratory exposition about how to beat the winter blahs. As of tomorrow some time, you can link to it on my BDN webpage...
And a little humor can help to weather the storm. I love this post on Hyperbole and a Half, which takes an extraordinarily realistic and riotous look at "Adventures in Depression."
