How do you beat the rainy day blues?

photo by Larkin OatesI am now in my third semester, learning to play the bass steel drums at Vanderbilt’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). Now, on overcast days if I get depressed, I visualize being on an island with turquoise water lapping onto the shore. I can easily imagine myself standing with feet sinking into the warm sand, playing my six bass pan drums, with a big band on the beach! That is heaven on earth.

To decrease stress and depression, what entertains you when it is dreary outside?
