Embrace it…all the good things about yourself. All the stuff you like about yourself…celebrate it. Maybe its your smile or your sense of humor or the way you worry about little animals getting wet in the rain… there is plenty that is great about you so remember it and celebrate it!
A few years ago I bought a lovely vintage handbag at a church flea market. Inside the bag I found a wrinkled piece of paper, which said: don’t wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel, stride down there and light the bloody thing yourself, Sara Henderson. I’ve no idea who Sara Henderson is and after I goggled her name, I am non the wiser. I love this quote because it describes me as person so well. I never sit around and wait for others to do things for me, but I ask for help when I need it. Never expect others to be in charge of your life. When you choose that path, you become passive rather than active. Don’t wait for a light to appear at the end of the tunnel, turn it on yourself. //Marianne
A synapse is the point of communication between one neuron and a neighboring neuron, muscle cell or gland cell. It is the site where virtually all important brain activity emerges. There are trillions of synapses in the brain: each one of our more than 100 billion neurons may be connected to hundreds of other cells by as many as 10,000 synapses. Together they form a complex and flexible instrument upon which the music of our thoughts, behaviors and feelings are composed.
When we learn something new, meet someone new, come to a vital time in our life, have a new experience and so on…these great moments literally “fire” in our brains and spark us with passion, excitement, learning and inspiration.
My play on this concept brings me to reference the “sparks” in our life that make us who we are today and who we have yet to become.

This is the first installment of my ‘Psychology meets Art’ feature in which I expore the relationship between these two domains. This post includes a list of famous artists who are to said to have suffered from mental illness and an explanation of how I think this has influenced their work.
- Vincent Van Gogh
Van Gogh suffered from epileptic seizures as a result of the amount of absinthe he drank. Art historians have studied his personal letters and noted that experienced very depressive states, which were followed by manic episodes where he showed extreme passion and determination towards his work. Could it be that he had bi-polar disorder? Some say he may have had schizophrenia. Many have tried to diagnose him but the answer is not known. Many of his late paintings show an optimism to return to good mental health. However, the painting below; ‘Wheat field with crows’- (1890)…
