CHIC Management’s Back to Black event could not possibly be in a more fitting month. Mental health awareness works so well with February when the dark has been eating at you since October and when it’s almost impossible to believe there ever was such a thing as summer and sunlight.

I wandered around the surreal art installation called Spirit a long time, taking pictures. As always I was drawn to the flying things. Watching flight while not being able to fly is always such a mix of melancholy and beauty.

Reaching out can be scary, you never know what you will find. Especially when the things in your mind begin haunting you…

Such strange things swimming in your mindscape, memories and emotions, fears and pains, regrets and shame… sorrow eating you, covering your skin, threatening to turn everything black.

Things stronger than you are, able to overwhelm you easily.

But to land on your feet, there’s no other route than through them.

I feel this turned so dark that I have to share with you a joke story about Finnish depression that made me laugh today. (It’s so true.) Also, I promise I have the counterpart to this post in the works and I’ll post Courage soon. These pictures just demanded a full post on their own.
