Dark, dark, dark

From fall time change to Winter Solstice is by far my least favorite time of the year. It is so dark and it is only getting darker. And darker. When it is dark I think it is time to sleep. The squirrels do not want to play. If I am at home I am lucky to stay awake past 9:30 pm. I become much less social because it is hard to leave the house when it is already dark. I have to wake up in the dark. The sun is just waking up when I go to work. I then sit in a cubicle maze without any windows. Then when I leave work it is dark. Spontaneous outdoor adventures don't happen because it is dark. Mood drops, energy levels drop. I don't get much done. Winter Solstice is a magical day. It is as dark as it is going to get. From there on every day is a little better than the last. Less than three weeks until solstice...
