up, up, and away #4: "birthday (part one)"

the fourth installment in “up, up, and away” takes a positive turn, as we start the “kindling” section, featuring scenes from spring, summer, fall, winter… and spring as well as a number of cool timelapse sequence borrowed from youtube.

kindling is the first phase in a manic experience, like pulling back the bow string before launching the arrow. the return of a sense of comfort after a long depression can feel like the world has become a magical place. and with every step regaining energy and balance the path can tilt steeper and steeper forward, until you start rolling down hill.
