Winter solstice has come and gone without much fanfare. It is also known as the shortest day of the year. Winter solstice marks the day we start to gain 3 minutes of light back each day. Short days can be a real bummer. I like winter, but it is the least liked of the four seasons. How do the yanks do it? PCG has noticed that I’ve been in a funk the last couple weeks. I can’t explain it really. Hard to put it to words. Just a little off. I knew something was wrong when I started to lose motivation to eat! She suggested I take vitamin D which was affirmed by Doc JV. He mentioned most people he sees this time of year have low levels of D. The fact that our body naturally produces vitamin D from sunlight is kind of amazing. There is so much about the human body that rings true of supreme brilliance, in creativity, in engineering and design not to mention artistry. I am also reminded of how delicate the body is when something so simple as lack of sunlight can throw you off. The body is a real wonder. Hope this vitamin D works. Make sure you consult your doctor before taking it. It’s one of those supplements that you can take too much of. Here’s to 3 minutes of additional light today! Take care of yourselves folks!
