When reality becomes so overwhelming it starts getting dull, resorting to imagination, music or any kind of art is certain source of mind relief.
When I’m soaring these evading winds, I actually find myself thinking even more, but in more focused and aware way. Concentrating on esthetics helps us cleanse the mind in a very Oscar-Wildian manner.
Quite surprisingly, every now and again I get away from reality by looking at hyperreal paintings or illustrations such as the ones created by Jonathan Viner:
As I’ve mentioned before, depictions of inner worlds always have an impact on me. The more they help us see our distorted reality a bit more poetically, the more impressive they are.
