depressing. The doldrums, dreariness, and plain ole ugliness of winter step in and kicked me in the behind – HARD– this week. Between the months of November and April, or when the first signs of greenery start sprouting, my mood changes from what it was during spring, summer, and fall. Sunrises at 6:30 a.m. and sunsets at 4:30 p.m. don’t only effect my complexion but my day-to-day attitude.
It happens to me every year. Just like a bear, except not as furry (or at least I hope), the cold puts me into a hibernation or a meditative mode. I become less active and more passive – like I’m playing a game of chess and stepping back to see where my pieces are. My mind reflects on what I have done in the past year and what I want to do in the next year. I’m strategizing my moves for 2013 and let’s just say it involves a lot of sewing and patter making.
What about you? Do you go through this or another mood cycles this time of year?
