One article I've read recently says that you should try and like the dark that winter brings, the frost on the ground which makes the air smell totally different, the sharpness in the air. And take in a few breaths of cold air in the morning just before the sunrise. The cold in the air and the little sunlight makes the whole scene blurred. Nothing has the sharpness of the daylight. The other senses sharpen to compensate for the clear lack of vision. The crashing waves are so much louder, gusts of wind against bushes and trees so much more violent in the dark. I know nothing bad can happen, but the soft sand under my feet and water slipping through layers of clothes make me wonder how I would feel if I could see absolutely nothing and I was only exposed to the damp air and wet on my skin. I am learning to enjoy the autumn dark, getting ready for more.
