Climate Change

It’s pretty hard when there are not actually any seasons  any more to get a rhythm of life going. To enjoy summer, winter, spring and autumn moods. Here we can have cold, hot, wet ,windy …cloudy, sunny …the seasons all in one day. One minute we have the electric blanket on then the air conditioner…our warm woollies and then our shorts.The weather has been more and more erratic. So there is no sense of adopting and enjoying a mood to match a season.  I am a summer person and I do changeable very badly.It is affecting me. It is affecting others. They were enjoying the cooler weather and the rain and all of a sudden we are very warm and very humid today. All weird. So the cool weather people are feeling out of sorts. We are just going to have to think about this and find a way of getting pleasure out of weather mayhem. Weather ties in so strongly with how you feel and what your mood is. Like you can be there thinking you ought to be cold but it’s warm or you’ll go out dressed for the cold and then it turns warm. It is confusing and we are getting tired and run down with it all. So my way of dealing with it is just to layer my clothes and be glad whatever is happening. Still makes me tired but I am not thrown by it all.
