Never have I listened to more music than right now. Every evening after work I dive into my own world surrounded by sounds and lyrics that make me dream away, calm down, give me mental strength, energy and inspiration, let me time travel, make me happy or dwell in melancholy, bring up memories and daydreams about the future. And it also makes me admire the wonderful things that humans are able to create out of simply what is inside of them. But not only music, my soul and eyes are longing for and soaking up every kind of art that I can find around me. Beautiful photographs, neat and colourful illustrations, lovely pottery, well written books, thrilling movies, fascinating dance choreographies, all push the current crushing reality to the back of my mind. At least for those moments and until I am able to face it all again.
More than ever before, have I realized how much art is able to help me through difficult times. More than ever before, have I realized what food for the soul means.
Thanks to all the artists out there for saving my mind!
