SAD Theory!

The first few years after arriving in Ireland weren’t easy. Especially the winters. How so? Well bringing a family from the warm southern hemisphere country of South Africa really impacted our lifestyle, especially in winter! Did I say especially in winter? I found myself watching endless wildlife programs in winter. And southern hemisphere sport. Especially in winter! So, after a few years ,I realised there was something called SAD. An interesting theory or reality?

Reality, I think. I have learned to deal with it a little better. Find ways to divert the mind. Write, blog… look back at summer galleries and process the photos. Then, get out of the house as often as possible! Just go sit at the beach for an hour or so! The mood lifts, the sad bit of SAD goes away until the next time! OK, I’ve now almost spoken myself out of my own theory… but just to prove your spirit can lift, I’ll show you a few happy, bright, summer’s photos!

    I grew up in Ireland and still find the winter depressing, particularly November. I can cope with December because there is Christmas and time off work and January brings new hope, but November, that is a month i wish i could sleep through!

    Dit moes ‘n vreeslike moeilike aanpassing gewees het, maar ek dink jou pisitiewe gesindheid het baie gehelp, AJ. Jou foto’s is pragtig!

    Yes, I know that feeling. 🙂 🙂 It’s those drab grey skies that get me. Cold and blue I can handle. We have some friends with family near Kilkenny and they’re flying over there today. Many’s the tale of dreary skies they’ve shared, and yet the little towns are so colourful. It is a lovely place. Just a bit damp and grey 🙂
