A Break in the Gloom – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Jan 282008

Living in Chicago in January with Seasonal Affective Disorder is not such a good thing. Most of last week was gray, gloomy, and cold. I can take all the vitamin D and fish oil I want along with staying active. But nothing does a S. A. D.er better than a sunny day in the upper 30s. I went for a walk through Grant Park down to the lake yesterday and soaked up all the sunshine I could. Here are some pictures.

Now back to gray and gloomy, although it’s in the 50s today, so not cold, but very, very windy. Tomorrow afternoon we’re supposed to have blizzard-like conditions. I will be working from home tomorrow, so I will only be watching the blizzard-like conditions (unlike Tracy who will probably be coming  home in those conditions). I like watching the snow (and rain) go up because of the updraft between buildings here. Then we’re back in the freezer. I am very glad that I got out yesterday and enjoyed the sunshine while I could. Now back to vitiamin D, fish oil, and activity, which is much easier said than done when you’re tired all the time from the aforementioned S. A. D. But spring is on its way.

Did you know there are only eight verses in the Bible that discourage women from speaking and holding leadership positions in the church? Did you know there are thousands of verses in the Bible that tell the stories of women who were leaders in their homes, towns, and religious circles?

  1. beautiful photos- I particulraly like the geese.

  2. Thanks for posting these. I am up in Wilmette and have the same struggles. I love soaking up the sun…even when it is 3 degrees outside.

  3. I have SAD as well. And I know that those sunny days in Chiucago in January are few and far between. But, oh, your photos make me homesick!!

  4. I don’t have SAD, but I’m really tired of driving in all the snow and ice…

  5. Thank you everyone!

    Kievas I don’t blame you. We don’t have a car, but I’m tired of wading through slush. Grocery shopping was quite the adventure today.

  6. Get ready for the next snowy onslaught…here it comes!
