Winter Solstice 2007 (Updated)

"The blues is just a song about

the one who left,

or the one you couldn't have,

or both" --Anonymous

Dec. 22, 2007, 1:08 A.M. EST (06:08 UT) is this year's winter solstice. It's the time of the year when the night is longest and the day is shortest. Around this time of the year, people, especially from temperate countries, start to complain of depression. Which is kind of ironic since it's the holidays. To put it simply, the supposed happiest time of the year is just around the corner. The more people realize this, the more depressed they become about being depressed. They couldn't help but feel left out when everybody else only has happy thoughts.

Researchers blame the lack of sunlight that supposedly wreaks havoc on our body's chemistry which make us vulnerable to depression. they have a cheesy name for this:

SAD syndrome (Seasonal Affective Disorder)...
Some just call it the Blues.

I started to write about this because I just realized that I made more blogs in 2006 than in 2007. wala akong ibang maisulat e. anyway...

Sa mga blogger friends natin na mayroong SAD syndrome, hindi biro ang syndrome na ito. Better seek the counsel of medical personnel trained to handle this. and please take comfort in the words of another blogger friend:

"Talagang ganyan ang mga magaganda, binibigyan ng problema para naman fair sa ibang babae"

The song below ain't the blues. But it's my Christmas Carol and Religious Song (think Handel's Messiah) rolled into one.

It's my Creed.

By: Creed

When dreaming, I'm guided to another
world time and time again at sunrise,
I fight to stay asleep, cause I don�t wanna
leave the comfort of this place cause
there�s a hunger longin to escape from
the life I live when I'm awake

So lets go there
Lets make our escape
C�mon lets go there
Lets ask can we stay
Can you take me higher
To a place where blind men see
Can you take me higher
To a place with golden streets

Although I would like our world to change,
it helps me to appreciate those nights and
those dreams but my friend, I'd sacrifice
all those nights if i could make the earth
and my dreams the same the only difference
is to let love replace all our hate

Repeat Chorus:

Up high I feel like I'm alive for the very first time
Said up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams and make them mine
Said up high I'm strong enough to take these dreams and make them mine

Repeat Chorus until fade

Belated Merry Christmas and advance Happy New Year sa inyo pong lahat!

Rudy/Sngl, sana'y maka date mo si Monica at Atticus next year (not necessarily in that order)

Atticus, nawa'y makita mong underneath Sngl's feigned misanthrophic skin lies the heart of a Mr. Darcy.

Pennylane, they did have a blast. Thanks!

Tin, You really are pretty, Pretty One. BTW my real name is Albert, Albert Martinez. so mali yung source mo.
