Melancholy & Creativity

Melancholy shouldn’t be confused with depression. Melancholy is an active state. When we’re melancholic, we feel uneasy with the way things are, the status quo, the conventions of our society. We yearn for a deeper, richer relationship with the world. And in that yearning, we’re forced to explore the potential within ourselves – a potential we might not have explored if we were simply content. We come up with new ways of seeing the world and new ways of being in the world. Melancholy and creativity go together like ebony and ivory on a piano.

  • Really excited about tomorrow, as I'm returning to #MaziliqueStudio and to working on my projects in my beloved kitchen. But until then, I'm treating the first Monday of the year as it should be - with 50 shades of grey laziness and a touch of nostalgia.
