(This entry is for Jumping Off Places. Info here.) The view outside the window had been gray for days. Inside, I was beginning to feel gray, as well. I needed some sunshine! My background included sunshine nearly 300 days a year! But to live here in Seattle now, I didn't know how to handle all these ashen wet days. What was I to do? I knew that I was sliding into a depression feeling like I just had to do something or I would scream! Cleaning projects, cooking and laundry, kids games, television, even craft projects couldn't fill the void. I needed the outdoors! The sunshine! Even a break in the clouds for a few minutes! I'd take it! Sam just doesn't understand, he grew up here. No longer will I call this "Sea" attle but "Gloom" attle! Sun, bright yellow light, where are you? As I gazed out the window, a little bird flitted into the tree, as though to say, "Will you settle for Blue?"
