Post-Christmas Pick-Me-Up

Many people in the Northern Hemisphere suffer with a malady which has been dubbed SAD - an acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder. This is not your clinical depression, rather a seasonal depression thought to be triggered by the decreasing length of daylight in Autumn and early Winter. Amongst non-pharmaceutical treatments, intensive light therapy within the daylight spectrum and an involvement with music and dance seem to be the most efficacious. Then there is the after-Christmas let down. It just the blues that come from unfulfilled expectations, excessive hype and hyperbole in support of the commercial feeding frenzy.

Well, here's my hair-of-the-dog remedy for what ails you -- little Celtic trance music from my favorite Celtic trancers, Skilda. Take two viewings and call me Ishmael.

And for those who like their lives and their trance music a bit more, shall we say, frantic.

I will say, that first one is relaxing.
