As we approach the winter season the days get shorter and darkness is more evident in our daily comings and goings. I leave for the office in the dark, and in a few short weeks I’ll be coming home in the dark. Soon, the only daylight I’ll get to experience during my work week is during my brief walk to get a bite to eat at lunchtime. The seasonal darkness can bring on a variety of maladies, both emotional and physical. And it seems a harbinger of what may await us all.
