Here's something about me. When I am feeling any kind of overwhelming emotion...sadness, anger, jealousy, annoyance, frustration, even happiness, All I need to do is drive. Hand me my keys, my camera, and some kind of music and I'm good.
See I'm not really a talker. (Hah!) Let me rephrase that, I talk all the time. My friends and family will be the first to tell you that I really never stop. But when it comes to dealing with a problem of some kind, most of the time I want to do it on my own.
I love to drive. At all times during the day really, but the best is really early morning, really late at night, or the most perfect time: right at sunset.
I'm in my winter slump. It happens every year. Don't get me wrong, I love winter. I love snow, chilly air, sweaters, scarves, boots, and nights at home with blankets and coffee. But my body needs sunshine, it needs fresh air, it needs things that are green. Once my birthday has passed (which is Saturday), I'm over winter. I'm done with it. See ya later, snow.
So the other day...I drove. For lots of different reasons including my winter slump. And when I get to my destination, or more often when I finish driving around randomly in circles, I feel better.
Get out of here, winter. Bring on the sunshine.
