A Little Down

I think my body is missing the sunshine because I've felt a little down the last few days. Researchers have linked depression to the lack of sunlight. I don't think I am depressed but I'm usually so UP that when I get a little down it seems significant.
One thing I did today was to focus on the "Now". When I made coffee, I smelled the ground coffee when I opened the bag, I let the cool water flow over my hand before filling the carafe, and savored the aroma of the coffee as it brewed.
I also sat on the screen porch for a long while and listened to the rhythm of the morning. Crowing of the rooster, rustling sounds of the birds, and the soft tinkle of wind chimes.
When you focus on what's going on around you, it somehow pulls you out of your malaise. Then when you focus your full attention to the task at hand, it leaves little room for dark thoughts.
Anyhow, this is a free weekend for us. We don't have any plans except to practice and to work on our singer/songwriter project. We have the songs and we are currently working out arrangements.
We'll be in the recording studio soon which is always a lot of fun.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
