late November 2018
decreased daylight, rain, cold,
and, oh, the state of the world
a surfeit of tears
at the sound of a carol
the squish of a bug
The blues can do a number on you. Sit under a therapeutic light, wrap yourself in a fuzzy sweater, brew a pot of tea, stay away from the news. Cry if you need to. Just remember, after December 21, the days will get longer again. The holiday rush will slow to a halt. And, after December 25, holiday chocolate will be "priced to go!" Stock up!
