Shortest day of the year. I hate it.
I love the night, i really am an amateur astronomer. But I hate the darkness, as if that makes any sense at all…There is just too much of it this time of year.
Today marks the start of what it historically a horrible time of year for me. For about two weeks I’ll be churlish, short and undependable in general. Whether or not you will be able to tell is the mark of how well I battle with this particular demon.
Astoundingly, it has absolutely nothing to do with the holidays, except for the excessive cheeriness of everybody that I meet. That irritates me. It just so happens that Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah and New Years fall right into my time.
No, for me it is somehow deeper than the holidays. What do I do about it? I have stuff scheduled all through the next two weeks, I WILL NOT let it tear me down. If I schedule things I get them done. Otherwise….
I’m just sayin’
