It has been a long week, an even longer month plagued by gray days. I got out of the office mid-week and was surprised by a beautiful blue sky. I carry my cell phone with me all the time, more for shooting random photos than anything else. I know I wasn't the only one who noticed the instant color, it was the hot topic right after lunch hour.
I'm a watcher of people and have noticed I'm not the only one who suffers from seasonal affective disorder. If a shrink sat outside the Target store and took surveys, I'm certain the percentage of bonafide sufferers would be high.
The cure? For me, there is nothing quite like a blue, clear sky. I have a light box and I take a little orange pill every morning but nothing works as well and instantly as natural light and color.
On my way to the bus stop yesterday morning, I shot this hopeful image. It was super cold but I felt warm and amazingly happy as I saw hope for the day. The sun eventually shined and I'm pretty sure I saw a shift in the overall mood of the peeps in my office.
Glancing out the window this morning, I see we have the promise of another blue sky day.
While the rest of the country is sitting in front of the tube and stuffing themselves with bad food, I think I'll take a road trip and see what I've been missing.
Are you affected by the weather?
