Michigan in January

I really hate Michigan in January. I cant remember the last time I saw the sun. My full-spectrum light helps but it just isn’t the same. Everyone I see looks like zombies mindlessly going about their daily business. Oh well, at least folks here in Michigan have better skin that folks in less cloudy parts of the world.

I had a dream last night that I haven’t been able to shake all day. I wont bore anyone with the details but a few long lost friends (a couple of whom I haven’t seen in over ten years) were in it and when I woke, I had an incredible longing to talk to them. That longing has been like a dull emotional ache all day. Still, I don’t think I will do anything to try to contact them because for the most part, I wouldn’t even know where to begin to find them and honestly I am a little too lazy to try. I guess it is just weird how sometimes certain people never leave us.

hmmm. tblog seems to be down or at least, I cant access it so I guess that for now, this wont be mirrored there.

I am so with you on this. I cannot wait til' January is over. Though I was expecting my first Michigan winter to be much colder than it has been.
