thats very true... as i managed to 'come out' as bipolar in the same
post, i might as well mention that most of my music is based on personal
experience... i find it helpful to express things and let them go, its
healing... sometimes its also been helpful to other people in that
they've realised 'hey, i'm not alone, someone else has felt like this
too'... the music of Radiohead does that to me...

i like those words of Heine.

and yes, actually i'm composing something at the moment that has
something to do with internal experiences... although not quite in this
