Giant Sunlamp, day 1.
I pulled it out of the box, leaned it against the wall, and turned it on. Ohhhh yeeeeah. I wasn’t able to assemble the stand it comes with as the bag of Miscellaneous Fastening Hardware it should have come with is missing; I’ve emailed the company and hopefully that will get dealt with soon.
But in the meantime… I sat in the studio chair for a while, having breakfast and doing Internet and suchlike. I was about eight feet away from it. It felt nice. Not OMG RELIGIOUS CONVERSION nice but damn nice. And when I got up and went to take a shower, for the first time in months, “go back to bed” did not pop up as a suggestion for what goes on today’s to-do list, at all.
When I got out of the shower, my instincts said “oh hey looks like the sun is out, cool” until I looked again and realized all the shadows were cast from a point down by the floor.
