healing art, and art to heal
Someone sent me this video and it made me think of how helpful it is is for people who have been depressed -- I mean everything from a touch of a sad mood to I mean Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders -depressed -- to use art to heal. Dancing, painting, writing, drawing, composing, playing, choreographing, videographing, filming, shooting and acting your feelings is an immensely powerful tool. We get so used to words -- using what comes out of our mouths to express ourselves when we are depressed or sad -- that we sometimes miss the power of our other gifts. This YouTube video includes pictures and other images to the Blue October song "Black Orchird" - an effort that probably helped the artist, and hundreds of thousands more.
