Lethargics and Light


Lethargics are to be laid in the light, and exposed to the rays of the sun for the disease is gloom.

~Aretaeus

An appropriate verse for the grey, dreary days of winter. The sunshine has only been peeking through briefly. Drizzle, rain, snow, and ice have been constant companions. One the days it doesn't shine, alternative light is sought! And speaking of light, what do you think of this lampshade? It's very old and in a museum. I love the vibrant blue color and especially like the crown and crest at the top. How interesting!
