Satscenes Cures Seasonal Depression

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 22:19

In 2005, Dr. Cliff Arnall said that January 24th was the most depressing day of the year.

Jan. 24 called worst day of year – World news-

LONDON – Is the midwinter weather wearing you down? Are you sinking in debt after the holidays? Angry with yourself for already breaking your New Year’s resolutions? Wish you could crawl back under the covers and not have to face another day of rain, sleet, snow and paperwork? Probably. After all, it’s Jan. 24, the “most depressing day of the year,” according to a U.K. psychologist.

In 2008, Twitter users proved that January 24th was, in fact, a beautiful day, all over the world!

We want to see MORE photographs of more places! Simply tweet the url of your photograph (taken on a Saturday) to @SatScenes to be included.

The Diary of Samuel Pepys
17 January 1666

Busy all the morning, settling things against my going out of towne this night.

After dinner, late took horse, having sent for Lashmore to go with me, and so he and I rode to Dagenhams in the dark. There find the whole family well. It was my Lord Crew’s desire that I should come, and chiefly to discourse with me of Lord Sandwich’s matters; and therein to persuade, what I had done already, that my Lord should sue out a pardon for his business of the prizes, as also for Bergen, and all he hath done this year past, before he begins his Embassy to Spayne. For it is to be feared that the Parliament will fly out against him and particular men, the next Session. He is glad also that my Lord is clear of his sea-imployment, though sorry as I am, only in the manner of its bringing about.

By and by to supper, my Lady Wright very kind. After supper up to wait on my Lady Crew, who is the same weake silly lady as ever, asking such saintly questions. Down to my Lord again and sat talking an houre or two, and anon to prayers the whole family, and then all to bed, I handsomely used, lying in the chamber Mr. Carteret formerly did, but sat up an houre talking sillily with Mr. Carteret and Mr. Marre, and so to bed.

If only he had a camera, a photo of his supper or even the silly Lady Crew would have fit right in with our Saturday Scenes from 17 January 2009:

Happy New Year!

On January 3rd, 1496 Leonardo da Vinci tried to fly and failed. He should have stuck to the pretty pictures.

On January 3rd, 2009, Satsceners took these photographs to give us a gorgeous selection for our first collection of the year:

I find the diverse weather particularly intriguing: frost and icicles and beach scenes all taken on the same day.

If you are looking for new people to follow on twitter, how about taking a look at our participants streams and saying hello?

We’d love to see your Saturday scenes, wherever in the world you might be. Simply take a photograph on a Saturday and send a message to @satscenes – how easy is that?
