Today’s episode is called Sun, Snow, and Solitude. Do you enjoy time alone? Do you meditate? Do you like spending time with people, getting out of the house, and being around others? Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
My son, Ben, says I’m an extrovert, and he has studied personality types quite extensively. In spite of being an extrovert, I certainly value my time alone. I enjoy my meditation time every day. That gives me the solitude I crave.
I also enjoy the sunshine, and I’ve talked about that a number of times in my solo episodes. The sun feeds me. It gives me energy and helps give me a feeling of positivity. For me, the sun is uplifting and can take me out of a funk.

Our kitchen has a large south-facing window, and if there’s any sunshine at all, the sun’s rays flood into this space. Sometimes, I sit there, soak up the sun, and meditate. The effect the sun has on my mood is powerful.
Snow is another one of my favorite elements of nature. It makes the sun even brighter. With a fresh snowfall, the world looks incredibly bright and beautiful. You might remember me saying that I walk every day. Even though I enjoy the weather almost every day, when there is sunshine and a new snowfall, I feel like I’m on top of the world. There’s something special about that combination of being alone with my thoughts and walking in nature with snow and sunshine.
With snow comes the cold, which I also enjoy. It is refreshing to spend time outside when the temperature is below freezing. As long as I’m dressed warmly, I feel like the fresh, cold air clears my mind and helps me feel empowered.
I injured my foot recently and had to back off on my daily walks. I’ve been seeing a doctor, and my foot is almost back to normal. This injury made me realize how much I miss my walks when I cannot enjoy my daily outings. Thanks for listening to this episode entitled Sun, Snow, and Solitude.
