We are having a heat wave in Colorado. It was in the 70ºs yesterday. It will be again today. It is nice to be able to be outside without tons of clothing, and it is nice for folks to be able to get back and forth across the state without dealing with treacherous snow-covered mountain passes.
I am grateful for having almost gotten through another winter. There are only a couple of weeks left of this official season. I really struggle through late winter every year. I guess it is called Seasonal Affective Disorder.
One of my favorite doctors at work came to tell me about an inservice he had attended about the importance of vitamin D. It seems that since everyone has covered up in an effort to avoid skin cancer, people are now having a shortage of this important vitamin - that is mainly available through beautiful sunshine. Sunscreen prevents the absorption of vitamin D. I may have worn sun screen once or twice in my life, but I love the sunshine and I don't want anything getting between me and it.
I will strive to get out in the sunshine today even though I have to be at work early and will probably have to stay late.
I think it would be a good day to stay sober, care to join me?
