Oh the shame of it! This blog is all about seasonal depression, winter blues, call it what you will – and I’ve been too disorganised and lazy to mention the just-passed solstice. Happy equinox for those in the northern hemisphere, for whom this was the longest day. And for those in the southern hemisphere, for whom this was the shortest day – bear up! The days will only get longer from now on.
I’ll finish with a nice picture of a fruitcake, as one of my workmates has the very civilised custom of bringing a large home made fruitcake in to work on both the summer and winter solstices. What a truly civilised custom. For my part I’ve promised to do the same on the two equinoxes – we’ll have to see how I go.
