But, for me, it seems to be a bit more than the "winter blues" or even seasonal effective disorder. My first problem is that I live in the suburbs and I don't drive. That in itself is a constant source of frustration, so little things like getting out with someone else driving or just taking a walk mean so much. Well, it probably won't surprise you that I haven't been out doing much walking and my family has been avoiding going out for the most part.
It's hard, and again, I know I'm not alone, but it's just been wave after wave of cold and snow. It makes me feel like I live in a little igloo trying to stay warm. Now, I'm not complaining about living in a home and having heat, but could it just be Spring already?
There's really no way to be sure if that's why I'm so stressed. But, I wonder. So, here's a haiku for today:
Cold and snow abound
No where to go but online
Is this why I write?
