One Week of Light Therapy

I posted about my new light therapy lamp last Friday in an attempt to combat my Seasonal Affective Disorder.

I have used it nightly for about 45 minutes. And so far I have to say, meh. Lola dislikes it and lets me know her displeasure by glaring at me with the intensity that’s only slightly less than the lamp. But she finally found out she can just put her head behind the lamp and not be so irritated.

The good part is that it brighter. This is especially nice when I’m practicing the cello and the light feels like a bright window where everything is sunny and nothing hurts.

The bad part is, I’m not sure how you quantify depression so I’m really not sure if it is much help. I’ll keep going to see how it does but I was was pretty down the last two days. So, I guess I’ll give it more of a try.

Shutdown Shortages Force Miami to Close Terminal

It’s going to get a lot worse before this gets better. This is McConnell’s fault. Yeah, Trump is the worst but this is widely known, even by the GOP even though they won’t say it in public. But McConnell had the votes to override Trump’s veto back in December and decided to put all his chips in on Trump once again.

Miami International Airport will close one of its terminals on Saturday because of staff shortages caused by the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government.

The Miami Herald reported that the airport will close its “G” terminal at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday to send Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents to other, busier checkpoints. The decision was made following a surge of call-outs from TSA workers at the airport as a result of December’s shutdown.
