Creating Art to Fight Depression

For the past 6 months, I have been working hard on creating this website and some of the images that will be posted here. Working on art and the website has the added benefit of keeping me occupied for a significant part of the day. Without having my own work, I would probably be clinically depressed. Since leaving the workforce, I have had what some would describe as a life changing experience. I call it “wearing out of the body”.

The best way I found to cope with pain and depression is to stay busy with something you enjoy. For me it is creating photographic art and learning new things, creating this website was a learning experience. I also tend to work on my psychedelic images when I feel a bit depressed, as it brings me back to the era in which I was the most happy! Happiness is a state of mind we create for ourselves. I like to be happy, because the alternative is not good for getting along well with others.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  2. A fascinating discussion is worth comment.
    I do believe that you need to publish more about this issue,
    it might not be a taboo subject but typically people do not speak
    about these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

  3. This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
