    I Love All Seasons But....

    Summertime is my season. I adore a clear blue sky and temperatures on the rise.  I can stand the heat. The sun has an immediate influence on my mood.  It is as if it warms my soul, even if it's the winter sun.  Sun and blue sky, summertime, I want it...

    The Sun Really Affects My Mood

    When the sun comes out it gives me a feeling of hope. I have depression and it really is instantaneous. Like this morning, it was all overcast and cloudy as I was waking up and I wasn't feeling good about the day, then the sun came up and I have hope and I want to be outside...

    Nothing But Blue Skies

    When you grow up with blue skies and sunshine, it seems to be the norm, and sometimes you long for a cloudy day or two to break up the monotony. Then if you live somewhere where the cloudy day is the norm, you find yourself craving the sunlight. It's been sunny for a few days...

    Oh Sunshine...how You Make Me Loud.

    When it's sunny I seem to talk a lot more and be in such a mood to talk. Today was one of those days where I just couldn't stop rambling. I really should because I'm afraid it might have already gotten me into some trouble with a friend. But, maybe I'm just overreacting and...

    A Sun Worshipper

    The moment the sun's rays shed their bright light, I intuitively turn towards a window or look up at the sky. Mentally, I dive into the brightness and glow. The look in my eyes softens, I smile and feel regenerated. No task seems as dreary as it does under a grey or cloudy sky. I...

    I Miss the Sun In Winter

    Living in Ontario we get more than our fair share of gloomy overcast days. Often throughout the winter more than half of the days have no sun. I guess this is a big part (for me anyway) of what causes the winter blahs. A couple of years ago a friend turned me onto tanning as a...

    I Don't Like The Cold

    One thing about growing up in Minnesota is that you either get used to the cold and make the best of it, or you don't and move away. I for one cannot stand cold weather and only return for occasional visits. I have found the sun shines more in some states than others.

    A Bundle Of Sunshine

    Yeah it's true I am happiest when it's sunny. I love waking up from a hangover to open the window and have the sun hitting me in the face like a hooker that hits her johns that don't pay her after sex. IndeedSee you later my alligators

    Health.

    The sun is the star closest to earth, so we are accountable to it. So thank that star who brings good humor, zest for life, health and light. A pleasure, in a society where it is more that people are laughing less and less!

    Sunshine

    I hate when it is humid but love when it is warm or hot.  Sunshine makes my day and I'll pick sunshine over cloudiness any day!  Sunshine always makes me feel better and happier and I feel more energetic when it is sunny.

    Not Sure What It Is

    I just loooooove the sun. The warmth, the light. When it's sunny outside I always have the blinds open to let the light pour in. I'm always happy when I'm out in the sunshine. I wish it could be sunny all the time!

    Sun worship. My being out by the pool

    when the sun shines richly is idyllic to me. I prefer to do this naked, and feel the sun kissing my body. I adore the feel of the sun kissing my body, a rich lover does Abellio appear to me each summers day.

    I Guess That Is Why I Settled In Hawaii

    I am absolutely most happy when the sun is shining brightly. My mood changes with the weather. That, in a way, is very ironic as I just recently had my second skin cancer (squamous cell) surgery and know that I must be very careful in the future to limit my exposure to the sun's...

    Nostalgia

    It's hard to be in a bad mood when the sun is warm and cheery in the sky. I love the feeling of being in a tank top, with my hair loose, and the sun warming my skin... Sunshine is, in my mind, equated with the endless summers of my youth. It reminds me of being carefree and...
