Beautiful in Oregon
But . . .
. . . it is the promise of winter around the corner.
Winter in Oregon
Have I mentioned gray?
This Oregon Seasonal Affective Disorder hits hardest after New Year's, though it begins to intensify much earlier. . .
And it's bad.
We who experience this loathsome sunless slow-motion suffocation dread it this year more than usual.
We don't know why.
But we do.
Looming forbidding haunting - can't shake it.
The sunshine this week is deceptive - but we'll take it.
We'll take it all in.
We'll throw our chore lists to the winds and soak up the sun, as much as we are able, steeping our minds in it in the hope that its memory will somehow see us through. . .
. . . the gray.
