Rain and Mood

(Toledo, OH) There is something about the appearance of rain for several days in a row that turns me into a hermit. This is more than simply seasonal affective disorder, or a desire to avoid getting wet.

I am convinced that weather triggers instinctual responses in humans, like the way I feel the desire to eat more food when the weather turns cold, or when the return of warm weather in the spring makes people amorous.

At any rate, it took extra effort to leave the house this morning and go to work, as I had quite the urge to open a book and sack out on the couch.
