I don’t know about you, but I find nonstop, sunny weather vaguely boring. My upsy-downsy tendencies need a touch of pathetic fallacy every now and then. Fog! Rain! Elements that howl! Nothing like a good grey, blustery day to set the mood straight, blow out the cobwebs and drive away the headache. Life just isn’t blue-skied 24/7, so isn’t it suitable that our climactic wallpaper reflect that fact? But I’m curious. How do you feel about it? Using the beautiful Atlantic Coast of the Arcachon peninsula as your subject, tell me, which do you prefer?
What is it?The Daily Cure for me is trying to smell taste touch—really experience— something, each day, that reminds me that I'm alive and, mostly, happy to be here. A small moment that should go a long way, at least in theory.

I’m like you, I love variety.
Me too, varied; however after four months of the lower here in Paris, a few days of the upper really helped put things back in balance!
I like seasons, variety. I love storms and rain, but also sunny, breezy days. I don’t like it when it gets too hot though. Scorching hot or heavy, humid weather makes me lethargic and cranky.
Yes, I hear folks around here complaining about the endless amounts of rain they’ve had this year in Bourgogne. But now, ahhhhhh, a stretch of sun. Even though I’m a “cloudy” person by preference.
It takes an experience of endless summer days without a drop of rain and then for the day to arrive when the rain comes to really understand how much we truly to love variety in a climate. Anything that is same, same monotonous certainly makes us crave the other. I never thought I would love rain until I lived in the south of France.
I had to waffle, and vote for balanced. However…I have to qualify my response (still reacting to years of filling in test bubbles I suppose!) because on any given day I might very well strongly prefer one over the other.
