I have never understood the term seasonal depression in my life. Now I do. It is such a weird thing how weather darkness, coldness can have an effect on you. The way it shapes you.
Also in Turkey, we always say our understanding of family is more intimate and deeper than European countries. But I don't believe that anymore. The effect of winter actually makes the house and people live in the house a very important part of their life.
I think we talked about this when we first came here. How different family values are. I think they have a different sense than we have in Turkey but not less deep. Or less important. Just different.
Spending so much time in the house makes you realize things.
Today I realized the sun rises a bit earlier now. Sky is not black when I wake up anymore. It’s twilight blue. And I can’t wait for spring to come.
