Blah, you think it's dark where you are, check out these afternoon photos from Ontario taken by Ruth of Body and Soul on the first day of winter. These Canadian bloggers take winter dark very seriously.
If the dark's got you down, check out The Center for Environmental Therapeutics. You can take some little quizzes about the states of your psyche and circadian rhythms. Find out your morningness-eveningness type (I'm 'moderate morning,' but really needed no fancy automated questionnaire to tell me that), whether your gloomy mood is SAD, sub-SAD, or just ordinary sad, and whether or not a light box would light up your world. And if light therapy is recommended, you can not only order a big old unit to blast out the blues, they'll even tell you the best time of day to use it.
