I am now in my third semester, learning to play the bass steel drums at Vanderbilt’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI). Now, on overcast days if I get depressed, I visualize being on an island with turquoise water lapping onto the shore. I can easily imagine myself standing with feet sinking into the warm sand, playing my six bass pan drums, with a big band on the beach! That is heaven on earth.
To decrease stress and depression, what entertains you when it is dreary outside?
