The roof outside my window used to be black.
Recently, it was reinforced.
But the surface was changed. It is now grey.
As a result, a lot of light is reflected from the roof into my room.
When it rains, puddles are formed, and even more light is reflected.
I removed my curtains.
Then I painted the dusty surround, and removed half of my ornaments.
This has resulted in a life-change. Even though this must seem such a small issue.
But I have spent the last month with greater light, brightness than I am used to.
Does this affect my tendency to Depression?
There is so much light.
Before this, I huddled in my room, adjusted the curtains, and even blocked the light with hordes of ornaments.
I wanted to block out the World. I wanted to be cosy.
Depression can be like that. We need a safe place, a cave.
Now I am doing the direct opposite.
The window is bare.
Light bounds in, unfettered.
