I love the weather in Los Angeles
The sun warms me: body, mind, heart and soul
my spirit, my emotional self
I have been living with Lyme Disease since 1991
One of my symptoms is extreme sensitivity
to the cold. I suffer terribly in dampness and humidity.
I moved here two and a half years ago,
and my body has been very happy since.
It is nice and dry here, and
the sun is warm even in the wintertime
I am also very sensitive to light and need
to be exposed to it on a daily basis.
I suffer from Seasonal affective disorder
but haven't experienced the symptoms since I moved here
The light in LA has a soothing and magical quality about it
It is too bright to look at,
but that means I can absorb it indirectly,
even in the shade, and still get my fill
Two major stressors have been removed,
and it has made a huge difference to my quality of life
