While Light Deprivation leads to Super Potent Pot, it leads to ever increasing inertia in my psyche. I start craving light and warmth about mid-February as the constant grey days close in and rob me of motivation and momentum.
I don’t think I am in the throes of SAD (Seasonally Affected Disorder), but I surely need brightness and more exercise. I have become too wussy to Winter Steelhead for very long and much too sedentary with a computer on my lap. I went hiking this past weekend to take photos…a simple hike…and felt muscle soreness the next day…a clear indication that more activity is in order and that this linkage with technology is askew. Let there be light & I need to get off my ass. Fly fishing, hiking, photography, wild flowers, gardening, fresh air! Get up…get out.
