“The sun,--the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man--burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.” ― Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist
it only took 1-1.5 hours to commute from home to workplace on my morning shift. work starts on 8.30am. plenty of time to catch the sunshine (and sunrise). however, my workplace is almost like a small box. secluded with minimal glimpse of sunshine. do the math with the freezing air con and rarely-cleaned-properly-carpeted floor. one by one of the workers in my department started to fall ill.
two weeks ago, i came to work seeing all the windows have been opened (but not the glass). finally the board started to take workers' health condition into consideration? i don't know. it was nice to see the sunshine seeping through the windows, though. it was pretty foggy but the sky was clear. and i am, less blue. sunshine does make a day better.
