Lately, the gray skies of fall and winter have begun descending on the Pacific Northwest. With those skies come what I call the doldrums. Hard to wake in the mornings, unmotivated throughout the day, longing for sunlight, wondering if you suffer from SAD, taking extra Vitamin D just in case. Add to that the fact that we live under approximately 25 old growth Doug firs and our home is often dark these days requiring lighting almost all day.
And yet this morning has dawned gloriously with sunlight streaming through our windows. The sky is blue, and the birds are singing! What an unexpected joy this day is! The mere sight of sunlight casting its wondrous beams on our floors lifts my heart and makes my soul sing.
