I still remember the gloom laden voice of my grandmother when it rained on a Monday – Wash Day as written on tablets of stone. My spirits would sink until I learned to laugh at the ridiculous theatricality of it.
It’s raining relentlessly today but as MTL says:
‘It’s warmer and the wind’s dropped.’ Dunkirk spirit?
The weather and sunlight do seem to affect one’s spirits. Ponita ( side bar) who lives in the centre of Canada says :
Pat, we have tons of sunshine here. It is the one thing that makes the winters livable here... dazzlingly brilliant sun with crystal clear blue skies. Just don't go outside!! ;-)This is a time of year when vulnerable people can sink into a depression, sometimes for no apparent reason. Are there more cases of depression in a country like Britain, which can have endless gray, gloomy days compared with somewhere like California for instance? Have you any thoughts on this?
