I don't use the term depression for my experience, but I do find that there is a big natural shift in winter that encourages going inward and slowing down.

Fall equinox today…energy shifts underway….
The longer I am psych drug free the more amazing my connection to all things becomes apparent. Not just the seasons, but the cycles of the moon, the weather, sun flares and everything in my environment matters. Yes! Everything matters.

Good morning. I've been going into a natural sort of winter withdrawal it seems...a lull of sorts. More meditation and contemplation, less writing.
