Posts Tagged ‘Vitamin D’


Hello all.

You will recall that I made one brief appearance here in December, when the holidays were still ahead of us and the winter was not yet officially declared.

Now, several months later, I find myself weary of the drab and dreary winter skies.  I am tired even of the sparkling snow when it falls lightly upon the fields, glittering  like shards of diamond dust.  That lovely sight cannot even lift myspirits, alas.

I have investigated these “winter blues”, wondering if I might be suffering from the lack of a substance found in sunshine that  I believe you now refer to as “Vitamin D”.  I must confess I have been loath to attempt my customary long walks thru Monticello’s pathways, not because of any particular lack of motivation nor physical infirmity, but perhaps more simply a weather-induced ennui which has kept me more sedentary than is wise.

I believe I have come to fully appreciate, in my time in the beyond, the positive powers of the Sun, Earth’s beautious solar orb whose healing rays bestow their gifts upon humankind without prejudice of any kind.  There is not a soul who does not crave the appearance of Sol as he rises each morning to cajole us out of our comfortable beds and thence to action.  In my heyday, I must confess, the sun’s first rays would most often never fail to arouse me — and I do mean in the fullest sense of the word — and allow me to begin my day in a most felicitous manner.  

I do hope the Sun affects you similarly.  Perhaps my current malaise is merely a lack of sunshine, or perhaps the lack of a suitable partner to make my mornings more memorable.  I wish for you all what I miss these days…the promise of warm companionship to help shake off the loneliness of the night. 

I thank you for listening to my musings this day, and I forgive any melancholy which may seem to emanate from my words. I am not so unhappy, really, but sometimes one does miss the pleasures of the flesh here where such things are no longer strictly necessary for fulfillment.  My memories will have to suffice, for now.

My friends, thank you for listening.
