    Sunshine And Cool Weather, I'm Happy...i'm Sad

    Fall in Oklahoma is my favorite time of the year. The only time the weather is predictable here is in August which is certainly always drought conditions. Depending on the year this lasts through September. But now! Yes now! Fall is here. There's a crisp chill in the air. It...

    Spring is fast approaching

    and I cannot wait for the warm air to come. I have for years told my mum that when spring comes on a nice dry sunny day I want to "roll around in the sunshine" I have even been known to go outside find a safe place to lie down and actually do so. I cannot wait for the suns...

    Though cloudy days feel good sometimes (you can stay at home, read a book and just chill), I can never get enough of the sun. Not just because every problem seems savable, but because any picture you take with a camera looks so good (even without photoshop). Whenever it's a sunny...

    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 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.

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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...

    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 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...
