I've recently come across this quote by Jim Carrey:
Depression is your body saying f*ck you, I don’t want to be this character anymore, I don’t want to hold up this avatar that you’ve created in the world. It’s too much for me. You should think of the word ‘depressed’ as ‘deep rest.’ Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you’ve been trying to play.
I've been going through some tough times. I am living alone and the #Corona crisis has made me even more lonely than I normally am. Also, I'm under pressure, trying to do my work as good as possible from home, which isn't easy.
I've seen it. I've seen people that think to hear God's voice and they take it seriously. They destroy other people's lives. In evangelical denominations it's quite common that the leaders emphasize hearing God's voice and they even encourage people to do it.
In an interview Joni Mitchell answered the question “What is music?”:
I can't speak in general, but I can tell you what it is to me. Chords are colors that depict the current state of your emotionality – speaking as a a composer, ok let's put it into that context – as a composer at the moment that I sit down with the intention of composing, you know, I fritter across the piano or I strum across the strings until I find the chords that make me go “Oh!” at that moment. But most of music – pop music – they get this formula chords, well all the people like these chords, so they play them ad nauseam. So I think that's “ik”, music is when you pull the chords from your inner core, whether they sound weird to people or not and anyone adventuresome is doing that.
