A friend of mine told me that this connection is not purely visual. He mentioned a home for the blind that had been constructed without windows. The residents became depressed. But when windows were added, their depression lifted.
How many unconscious connections do we have to our environment? And how do we subvert them by living the way we do?
-8°C (17.6°F) A bit warmer and a lot sunnier today. Why does the weather have such a strong effect on our moods? Why is it that washed-out gray days wear us down, and bright sun tends to pull us up?
