Why is Winter dark so unfriendly?

I took Khalee for a walk at 5 PM today and it was dark of course because it’s November and I just noticed how it felt unfriendly out.

I wasn’t scared. I wasn’t nervous. I wasn’t apprehensive. I didn’t feel threatened.

It was just unfriendly.

And I started thinking about the darkness of summertime and how it’s more enjoyable to be outside then.

I don’t know if it’s the fact that it’s dark at a different time of day or the fact that it’s cold out that’s creating that on friendliness?

Or maybe it’s my perception of the cold that’s making it unfriendly?

Obviously, this will require some more observation.

Further updates as events warrant.
