Light at the End of the Tunnel
I found myself on a getaway to Iceland to do exactly that, get away. You can only find yourself when your not looking. Try not to chase the shadow of drama while hoots and hollers are in the horizon. I personally suffer from depression and it has been something I did not like to talk about until recently, I would cover up, put my mask on and continued with everyday life like nothing was wrong. My mask is a smile used to hide the behind but not everyone has this mask nor does everyone result or react the same to any given situation. Iceland has always helped me to become one with nature, allows the seed of life to be planted even with little to no soil, from there it can grow tall and strong and start to blossom. During this spontaneous getaway we really wanted to see some Iceland natural ice cave as these are something truly spectacular to witness. You start by taking a super Jeep or super bus up to the bottom of these massive glaciers tongues before setting on your hike up the unknown. Crossing glacial rivers and streams, over dead ice before reaching the destination of blue. The glacial ice is a good representation of depression to me with the beautiful blue colours shinning brightly like the life you dream and want, while these dark deposits are what etch through and melt away all that was beautiful. Once the beautiful blue is gone you are left with rocks and sediment covering the glacial ice resulting in “dead ice”, where the beautiful blue ice which can no longer see the light. In life one must not let the beautiful blue melt away and get covered by these dark deposits, one must realize the dark times make the good times better and without the good times one can not get through the dark times.
