Ice world / 2022
"It simply came to our notice then. Through him, I have discovered how wonderful and diverse nature is. How fast he changes. According to the location in Estonia, there are so many special forms that could never be captured. On some beaches, the picture changes every day, the ice layers move, forming shapes, colors, layers, depths, and heights.
On the other hand, the ice of some lakes stands in one place for almost the whole winter, not moving, quietly waiting for spring and then melting into the water again, starting a new cycle.
Ice can be delicate, strong, slippery, transparent, layered, dull, sharp, and multi-faced. It seems to remind us of ourselves, the people who have souls. I believe that ice can also have a soul. Its structures show us where to look, what to notice, where to be more vigilant, to be more aware, giving us signs of patterns that affect our actions.
It's like a fairy tale that deeply reflects the state of our soul. ”
