Art and creativity have an incredible ability to heal. When you're feeling lost or sad or confused or just want to be inspired, who or what do you turn to for comfort, hope, inspiration, reassurance, understanding? What specific writing, music, TV, movies, artists, or any other creative genres do you go to, and why? Post links, images, or videos, if you'd like.
I was so depressed at Kate Spade's and Anthony Bourdain's suicides, because I often think of creativity and artistic endeavors as ways to combat depression, but then you see these people who are totally immersed in ther own creative endeavors who are more tortured than anyone.
I don't have an answer for that.
I started my bucket list about two years ago. It was to read the classics I had been a little in awe of when I was young. These books, plays, poems are great to life me out of myself, especially if people are getting me down. I think it's about aspiration - the best of ideas expressed in the nicest of ways. Right now it's Dostoevsky's The Idiot and Spencer's Fairy Queen. For music, it would be something like Jessye Norman's Mild und Leise.
