Since Helsinki Day on June 12th there has been an art installation by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama in Esplande Park, Ascension of Polka Dots.

”These works have been inspired by beautiful nature and people, and they create communication between nature and living beings. The shining city of Helsinki, as well as the life we wish for becomes even more beautiful.”

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new a different sun.
