Art is most often created from crisis and mania.  The best ideas I’ve ever had have come from the edge of my losing it.  It’s a beautiful tragedy because it’s almost always from loss, not gain.  We create to fill a hole with something new, so far and abstract from the truth.  We collect these pieces and build a new foundation that we can be proud of.  The decimation of what we no longer have makes us aim to cover it up with something beautiful.
