We’ve reached the fall equinox already and darkness is creeping in. As I get older (and more aware of SAD) I try to embrace this half of the year and not fight it–think candles, yarn, a car that can drive in the snow like a boss, a giant mood-lifting sun lamp at work, etc.

I think of this quote from Cold Mountain, too:

“Over time, watching [seasons change] again and again might make the years seem not such an awful linear progress but instead a looping and a return.”
