Self-Made Traps

Few can escape self-made traps.

       This is true, sometimes we are our own worst enemy. If we bring negativity and the feeling of despair to a situation, we are unlikely to find a way out. It is the triumph of optimism that allows escape from hardship.
       The Scream is one of the most iconic pieces in art. Edvard Munch said he was trying to capture: "the breaking point of the soul". That's powerful, as I assume we all have stood on that bridge at our human (or psychological) breaking point. But to experience the "breaking point of a soul"...that's one of many concepts that art and music capture well before the human psyche ever could.
