Staying Well In Winter
Simon and Garfunkel [and later, The Bangles] had it right. Winter light is hazy - it's more diffuse. The sun is lower in the sky and the sun's rays reach the Earth at an angle, losing much of their power. And of course, there's less sunlight during each 24-hour day of winter than during the rest of the year.
Many people experience winter as a season of discontent [paraphrasing Shakespeare's Richard III]. Cold weather, gray skies, and markedly reduced hours of daylight conspire to create mood changes in people all across the Northern Hemisphere.
