Another dark day broke and I drove off to town - because of Christmas. I always dry to arrange the driving so that I would be able to do the trip in daylight but it is no longer possible, the day is just too short. Around four in the afternoon it feels like nine o’clock at night and all the afternoon I feel like putting the pj’s on and going to bed, by six I gaze at the time being sure that it's midnight. I feel like a blind mole underground most days.
I drive from the country where the world is wrapped into this black and silent blanket to town where it is merry and lively jingle bells with bright lights. The contrast is delightful but I feel relieved when the car pulls to the garage and its peace and harmony again – except for Tina who greets me with jolly barking.
I enjoy the colour red very much at this time of the year. The colours in the nature have died out long time ago and ever since the end of September the world has been quite dull, so red is very welcome. For these short few weeks the red spots in the house draw my eyes and I can’t get enough of the colour. I have read that red is supposed to bring up the blood pressure a bit, so serious red therapy is necessary that I will not fall into hibernation completely and therefore I have been embroidring red linen napkins. I'm sure this helps.All your supportive comments are treasured, thank you.
