Alas, this is a great hub or writer's prompt, indeed. Much could be said for sure. I have made a note, so maybe on a day off :)
A quick spontaneous response is - it is cloudy or low overcast now here at Escondido, just a half hour or so from San Diego. I like it, presenting a calming feeling for the middle of my work week. I am also entering into the most hectic days too. It is like a breath of fresh air, kinda'.
I have a dxd and like leaderofmany the sunlight is important to me as well. Vitamin D deficiency I am acquainted with per my Doc. But, too much revs up many and that becomes draining with interactions.
I suspect the Monday blues will be higher than normal at work today when I get there, yet there will be a calmed sensation, which will be good for me - Monday being the got'ta get this done now kinda' day normally.
So, having lived in Seattle I know too many is not good, though sometimes it is a blessing too.
Maybe an idea or two there for a hub for the adventurer and explorers visiting this question today . . .
