Haiku for Moscow from a Texas Gal
no respite from bleak grayness –
y’all must be stoic!
Moscow endured a December with almost no sunshine – can you imagine??? The minute I heard about this I felt an empathetic psychosomatic case of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) coming on. How did they manage? BBC News correspondent Oleg Boldyrev describes a hundred shades of grey in How to survive in Moscow without sunshine – BBC News.
I first heard this story on NPR’s All Things Considered; click here for the transcript or here to listen. One thing I’ve noted in the several articles I’ve read about this sunless situation is that folks in Moscow seem to be very stoic and are taking it in good humor, much better than I would. I would be SAD without sunlight for an extended period.
Here’s to you, Moscow, and hopefully you’ll see the light soon.
