Vernal Equinox

Today is technically the first day of Spring. Well it depends on what Spring bring for you. The cold dreary winter is gone and here comes a season full of allergies. Whoohoo!!! Spring has the most positive connotation of all seasons. Does a season really affect how we feel? Are people happier in sunny beach California than in people in say Boston? Is the need for light a genetic thing or an envirnoment conditioning? Some one told me that 60% of people in Alaska suffer from some kind of depression.

It's true that about 60% of people in Alaska suffer from depression. Winter caps with little lights on them (to light up the face and give them a "daytime" feeling are very popular there).

I seem to be very sensitive to the seasonal changes and especially spring. For me, I really struggle as the season arrives as far as feeling very depressed and unsettled. I have finally realized that I go through this every year at this time. Once I make it over the hump of the season change, then I become almost euphoic with the awesomeness of spring and new beginnings. It helps to know that I will get through this but it is very ineresting to me that I would feel depressed at this wonderful time of year.
