Beware!! By all accounts and behaviours observed by yours truly over the past 24 hours, evidence points to a powerful arrival of the Winter Funk! Everything from our circadian rhythms to our melatonin and seratonin levels to our hormonal imbalances are bouncing all over the chart, and that spells DISASTER on a lot of levels, particularly in the arena of interpersonal relationships.
Over 25 years of journal entries confirm that it's that blah time of year when we all run a fairly strong current of malaise, depression, and/or irritability! According to my records and alas, I must confess, personal experience, it's "out of kilter" time, and this year, the blahs, depressions, sadnesses, disconnects, sensitivities and general yuks could have the potential to be really potent and butt-kicking.
Advice from The Farm, for what it's worth....
Be like the bear.....Gather up a good stock of carbs, 25 lbs. of chocolate, some chessy books, an I-Pod, and knitting projects, and retreat to your cave. Take a long winter's nap. Avoid contact with all other haywired humans and keep closely in touch with the animals and birds. (They seem to have this winter stuff under control.) Resurface only when wait there's more light than darkness in the day, the temps are warm enough to be tolerated in just a sweater, and the daffodils are well on their way to bloom. As a last resort, take drugs.
Happy zzzzzzz's ! See ya in April or May!
