The winter doldrums are starting to weigh heavily on me. I generally love winter, but this has been an excessively long, cold and snowy one. The few nicely sunny days we’ve experienced have been squandered on workdays, with weekends largely remaining gloomy and overcast. I’m starting to feel that dull, glassy glaze that comes from a sunlight deficiency. Unfortunately, once the warm weather does arrive, it could very well bring with it sniffles, colds, flu, allergies and all that other nonsense. Who can really enjoy a fine spring afternoon when one’s sinuses are clogged and equilibrium thrown into a tizzy?
