It’s a late November day, the same monotonous hue of slate gray permeates the sky from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The wind howls in gusts, and after finishing morning chores, I’d much rather be inside. As the incredibly short and gray days accumulate, it’s easy to feel gloomy, lethargic and melancholy. Springtime, alas, is as yet a long way off — time for an intervention!
