Everything around us, even the most unexpected, has a dark side. An unexplored and hidden shaded area that we can hardly see or imagine. When we speak of darkness we do not mean only the lack of light, but also the restlessness of the spirit and that mysterious force that leads us away from the right path.

Either way we need to remember that this is not the end and that we will have our happy moments.
