January Blues

Christmas and New Years are long since over and we’re smack in the middle of winter. Living in one of the cloudiest towns in the UK, this is the time of year where I am reminded how much I hate the colour grey. Grey clouds lead to grey emotions and it’s easy to get swamped in a mixture of stress, boredom and unease. Made ever more exasperating by the near constant drizzle and umbrella-destroying wind. It gets increasingly difficult for my inner summer child to deal with every year. I’ve tried staying inside, going out in it, staring out the window silently, and ignoring it completely blasting cheerful and peppy music. This year I decided to try something a little different. I will embrace this miserable grey-ness by accompanying it with some enjoyably melancholy music. The logic to this? If you can’t beat them, join ’em.
