Witnessing a flash of lightning is a privileged moment for Laine, when the terror of the first light blends with the magic of the nature spectacle observed from a safe window. Would the sky light up with divine energy, the timeless heritage of Baltic pagans beliefs? Light and darkness are inseparable, so are life and death. It is not uncommon to see Latvians celebrating Kapu svētki dancing near a loved one’s grave. Let’s awaken your spiritual mind!
