Happy birthday Mom ♥️ @hilitskaya3143 ⠀ ⠀My original idea was to make a surprise by coming back home for her birthday. After being apart for almost 3 years it sounded like a damn good plan. Well, pandemic and traveling for 5,000 miles to another country doesn't go well along together. ⠀ ⠀I won't deny, I was upset and it took me a while to get rid of all those oppressive thoughts of lost opportunities during coronavirus that were circling in my mind. There’s no better way for me to do that rather than to make myself busy with work, art, reading, etc. to fill up that void with something meaningful. And I've decided to write down a nice letter, expressing my warmest feelings on a paper. My handwriting doesn't really change much since an elementary school, so my mom should've no trouble reading that 4-page sentimental essay. And you can imagine how disappointed I was to find that USPS has stopped international shipping! “Manuscripts don't burn” – so my sealed letter gonna aged in a drawer as a good wine does in a cellar. ⠀ ⠀In the meantime, I should've found a way to pass along birthday wishes, as well as to get rid of accumulated stress. These days running and cycling really helping me to find tranquility and focus my mind on positive things and future plans. Here I should mention both my friend Alexey, as well as Crystal @murdamex and Callie @callie_fornia whose role models and advice were so inspirational. ⠀ ⠀The idea to write “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” on my bicycle with the use of GPS-tracker — that's where all my thrust for activities, art, and crazy stuff came together (and still fits into new social norms). Few evenings spent on sketching up routes, location scouting, grammar check – I was ready to hit the road. ⠀ … 3,5 hours later… ⠀⠀ ⠀Happy birthday, Mom! 😘⠀ I love you the most! We’ve definitely had our ups and downs, however, I am so impressed by your optimism, and kindness to everyone around you. Also by doing this, I wanted to honor and recognize the motherhood: tender hearts, weathered hands, and diligent courage that holds us close and shapes who we are today. 🙏 ⠀ ⠀Happy Mother’s Day ! 🎉
Виктор Гилицкий работает в Чикаго фотографом. Из-за эпидемиологической ситуации в мире, его поездка в Минск на день рождения мамы отменилась.
Но он не отчаялся и придумал, как можно необычно поздравить самого дорогого человека, находясь почти в 8 тыс. километрах от него. Парень ездил по Чикаго на велосипеде с GPS-трекером, чтобы составить из своего маршрута на карте надпись Happy Вirthday, Mom.
