On Rainy Days
12/20/2002

Rainy days are particularly depleting during this time of year. When one wakes up tired and with a cold, it is still dark, and the entire day seems hardly to lighten. By the time the child has been handed off to the spouse and work begun, the unseen sun is already headed toward the horizon, which is merely a blur, and the darkness fills in to night. It is difficult to maintain motivation on these days — difficult, even, to keep one's eyes open.

I think I'll go walk the dogs while the weather is still interestingly inclement, without the annoying spittle that marbles my glasses. Things were easier when I could see.
