I am sitting here bathed in an unearthly glow. Seen from the street, I appear to be a saint in ecstasy. Yes, I have bought an anti-SAD light, a Lumie to be exact. I don't on the whole think Seasonal Affective Disorder really qualifies as a disease, but, in these darkening days, I do feel the lack of light. It seems to work. I have been feeling very wide awake since I bought it. This is not entirely a good thing as it is compounding my famous sleep problems. But, since I feel wide awake, it doesn't seem to matter. There is something of the Keith Richards approach to life in this and, not being Keith, it is likely that, in the near future, I shall fall down and sleep for several months. Or die. So, if, suddenly, only Nige blogs, that's what has happened.
