I'm having quite difficult time in my personal life. Especially I'm being in a chapter of losing a person that I love, lots emotional stress has driven me to the edge of myself, and additionaly my health is on a setback because of the stress... that I didn't really know what to do, besides how the world became so empty in my heart.

Though, I always had idea when I'm in a midst of enormous stress, travelling to very unusual places with emanating very peaceful energy to your mind and soul. That could be helpful to "find a peace in yourself" and answers.
However, this time I really didn't feel to go anywhere or do something for myself. But after battling with my mind, I decided to go, especially go through part of going through long hours of train rides and many hours of hiking in the mountains. At first, it made me to feel worse because I was thinking too much. Hiking didn't help a lot due to long, boring, monotous walk- it caused me to think even more. And I became even sadder.

I reached to the goal- which was very unusual. Peaceful lake in midst of dark, depressing and rageous clouds with bits of light shines.

Despite that I've reached there, for the entire Journey I've carried a baggage of my difficult and poignant feelings. It traversed along with me. No matter where I will go, if the feelings are not taken care of, fixed they will remain within you anywhere in the world. As there is that wise saying.
Of course that trip wasn't vain at all, at least I made some thinking and conclusions... I thought, I still have options to try out something...
After returning from that trip -despite that being in the nature I was still doing unwell during hike- I feel like I've gained some kind of faith. Maybe I can fix something that has been broken. An image of dark colored, with some vibrant, shimmering psychedelic lavender, indigo and turquoise colors of that lake is stuck in my mind...

Maybe there I should have also send my shattered heart into pieces to heavens, let it to heal...

I don't know.
Love is an untamed force.

Onto technical thing, I'm quite impressed of Sony SLT cameras that are are far more unique than DSLR...

Wow. I was passing through my watches and I stopped at this one for some reason. I read what you said and it was just touching. In any case, I'm here if you ever wanna like contact me and talk. I'm told I should be a therapist XD In any case I'm also a lonely person so conversation is welcome :) I hope  you feel well!

Faith is a projection on reality, not reality. Believing and basing things on reality will be of much more benefit to you.

WE can run into depressing times, hard times, difficult times, whichever way you want to interpret it. But what we need to know is, that we can still breath. By breathing deeply during those times, at least a few times, you will start to calm yourself, and be able to just be peace. 

That's at least how I see it. And it always worked for me. By just breathing, especially deep breaths.

Thanks for sharing this lovely picture!

It is a beautiful place.  It sounds like from your description that you were at least able to sort out out what you needed to do.


I hope peace and joy find you soon again.

Oh, thank you so much for featuring my less known field of art- photography! Great choice of other photos, too. Thanks for inspiration!
