It always amazes me what colours (yes, Canadians spell it that way .. just like our British friends) .. and light can to for us or to us. I was sitting in my little office here feeling very ho hum about not getting anything accomplished this week .. that touch up painting job in the bathroom didn't happen .. although I bought a nifty new shower curtain and cool leaf shower hooks .. I'm so behind the times .. at times ! I guess what I am arriving at, ever so slowly was the drama of how I felt when the clouds rolled in .. and it got darker here .. very blah and "damn it why didn't I get more done , etc .... feeling. Then the sun broke through the clouds .. patches of blue appeared .. et voila` .. I didn't feel so nonplussed about life in that moment .. I won't say cheerful .. but more positive perhaps ? Then the light shifted again and back to the doldrums .. As if some one was turning a switch on and off in me .. Now I could put it down to being menopausal .. but NO ! .. I have seen studies about the affect of light and colour on people. And yes Virginia, there is a condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder for which ultra violet light is a therapy, along with ionized air, medication etc .. is used to lift that blue mood. But how fast does light and colour swing me like a cat by it's tail ??? That is another whole can of worms .. look out .. here comes the sun again ????
