Ramblings from a heliophobic curmudgeon  
Sunlight: oppressive, glaring, and painful. Seeing sunlight come in windows inspires a trapped feeling in me, and I get a tangible itching-burning feeling within moments of the sunlight touching my skin. I really don't see what people enjoy about it. Anything brighter than twilight starts off at uncomfortable, and days like today are worse.

When I get the house (hah!), will need to plant vegetation to increase shade.

I understand the feeling. Fortunately our house is at such an angle that little to no sun gets in the house.

As for plants, if you don't mind trying to keep them out of stuff, bamboo grows quickly and is tall, but it gets very invasive. I don't know if they pollinate.

I feel your pain. Winter, where there's hot chocolate, warm PJs, and where the sun is not hurting my eyes....ah, dear friend...

I don't know about you, but come June 1st, my husband always wishes me a good 3 month long nap.

My apartment's main windows are north facing. This was not an accident.

No, Not the Sun!
I just watched "The Seventh Seal" a few days ago. In his films, Ingmar Bergman, used heat produced by sunlight as a symbol of oppression.

I feel the same way.

There is a reason why I have cases of SPF 48, rubproof, sweatproof, waterproof, 8 hour sunblock in my house.

Sorry, can't relate.

It's the source of all life, it's the symbol for the Divine in almost every culture on the planet, and I spent twenty years leaving in an urban area with the word "beach" in it's name.

Besides, when it's sunny you can actually see Mt. Rainier, and I never get tired of seeing Mt. Rainier.

But that's okay, I still love you and your shadowy ways :)
