you are welcome


Long and narrow and the dark corridor of the Klaipėda psychiatric hospital loses its crushing pressure in the purity of Giedre's smile. She picked up a shred of paper and trimmed it. Her heart gave birth to a fairy story that you cam see shining in her hands now.
And Giedre isn't alone. All People of art therapy club are such miracal doers. And that's not high words. While visiting Modus Vivendi I completely forget the devastating weather conditions outdoor and started to smile too. I took my camera and thus you can see my face too between the artists who decorates our gloomy sky.









The girl on the left side is Silvia.


Silvia looked at the dustbin and what was thrown out as the litters already has revived to a new life in her white-and-black applique that you see below.


Multitude of fairy tales characters has appeared as if from nowhere and look at us, welcome us, and we smile together. That's not the end. Santa Claus is coming and who now what awaits us under the Christmas tree.
