Being Forward-Thinking, Desperado!

My mood has been sharply worse, tied closely to the recent drop in temperature outside. I generally admit to Seasonal Affective Disorder, a/k/a Winter Blues, but that's usually tied to daylight length alone. The recent crazy weather has proved - to me, at least - that in my case, the temperature is involved too. I hate the feeling that the outside is hostile, and that I have to bundle up and shield as much skin as possible from the nasty, harsh, cold air.

One of my mental soundtracks on cold, short, gloomy days is "Desperado":

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time,
The sky won't snow, and the sun won't shine,
It's hard to tell the night time from the day.
You're losing all your highs and lows,
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Thinking forward, planning something pleasant is one of the most helpful things for me at times like this, so I'm trying to concentrate on Katsucon. The Young Lady is making a costume - very slowly. I could have finished at least the top by now, if I were doing it myself, because it's pretty straightforward. But she needs to learn ... . I'll have to cut out and get started on my own costume this weekend, I think, even if it means I start running over the top of her to some extent.

The main problem is that I'm also over-anticipating the con. I've had all sorts of lovely ridiculous daydreams, mostly running into old friends and resolving all sorts of unfinished business in the most cheery and satisfactory ways. And it's all so damn unlikely - some of those people wouldn't be caught dead at such an event, some live way far away ... . Why can't I just be happy to let it be what it will be ...?
