The Netherlands are a dark place during winter.
December darkens the dim days.
I survive the subpolar night using my alternative winter time. Fortunately the workhours at SUMit HQ are flexible.
The day is well under way when the sun is shining brightly enough to wake me up. This shifted day pattern is nice enough, but I miss a lot of the already scant daylight. Dusk falls before my day has even started.
I had a number of early morning appointments in my agenda last week. Help! How do I synchronize my rhythm with the rest of Holland?
I hate alarm clocks. A radio alarm is almost as bad. What a terrible idea:
Well, here is the invention of this winter: A-sun, the Artificial sun. It is a simple yet effective device: A double fluorescent tube controlled by a timer.
The alarm clock was still off, but I overlooked the a-sun. I don't need a sunrise simulation during the weekend. Sigh, how does one synchronize a tube light with one's own weekly pattern?
