An underpass of the Leppävaara train station in the City of Espoo, Finland, has undergone a renovation project. The project separated more clearly the cycle path and the pedestrian paths, causing less accidents. Also the train platform numbers were oversized so those can been seen far away. In the underpass the walls were painted, urban art was reveiled, as such in the photo. There is a futuristic light installation on the roof of the underpass, which changes colours in a certain pattern.

Fantasy Satire superstitions pandemic worry

This story was written during an earlier, and much less dangerous, pandemic. The ideas underlying it are far too relevant.

That is, of course, ridiculous, but the fact that I know that doesn't keep me from worrying and hoping that worrying will be enough. Stay home if you can, wash your hands, and keep your distance if you must go outside.
