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!
