A friend of mine who's been suffering from depression for most of her life told me that it's during fall more than any other time that one ends up on antidepressants.

Wow. I love fall. The heart of summer is depressing to me. Early spring and summer are nice, but there comes a point when the heat here becomes downright oppressive.

Ordinarily I love the transition seasons. This year, though, our spring was just downright awful (four days of sun in all of May). We had awful weather for since like last Wednesday and it may well extend into the middle of next week. Lack of sun hurts. It adds to my general feeling of malaise.

Yes, the lack of sun can hurt. I think for me that's why early spring is so nice, even after our abbreviated winter season.

The equinoxes and solstices are major mental turning points for me. I'll be down until late December, when I know that the days will start lengthening again. Even though it'll be cold and awful out, I'll have that little bit to comfort me.

How is it in your neck of the woods in winter, by the way? Am thinking of visiting AZ and maybe TX in December just to use up some time I'd otherwise use and to get some sun and dry air. Have never been further west than my home town (Buffalo, NY), save for a conference in LV. Have never been further south than the Outer Banks in NC. Am really rearing to visit the Southwest.

I'd like to move soon and one state I was thinking about was Arizona. I hear it's a dry heat. ha!

Winters here are, of course, mild. At the coldest it's 30-40 degrees. No snow. I hear that in northern Texas-- Dallas, Amarillo--they get a little snow. Nothing like you're used to, just enough to make rush hour a nightmare.

It's still warm out now and it's mid October. I have a feeling we're going to have a warm winter.
