If your going through some &*%# in your life chances are somebody else has gone through the same thing before ya. And they’ve written about it. Some poet or philosopher has been through the same type of *&^%, and they’ve written about it. And when you find that poem or piece of writing. You think bloody hell this bastard has just summed it all up. It’s kinda comforting. Know what I mean?
Movie: Two Hands
— Introduction —
A curator and a patron stand in an art gallery.
There are two paintings on the wall:
One has a beautiful blue horse running fast through dreary grey backdrop.
One is a complex scene, it is of the world, with many complex interactions and activities.
The patron asks if the curator can explain the art.
The curator says:
“I think any work, for an artist, comes through to them, as a single thought of inspiration. The best artworks are simple like the painting of the horse, the complex one is really just a collection of smaller simpler elements, confusing as a whole. ”
“The imagination of the soul is like that, full of pre conceived notions, based on experience.”
“Your souls imagination could help you to convey just about any meaning from the paintings. I like to take a step back, think, empty my mind, remove pre conceived bias of experience, seek clarity, and try to think if I can see the original source of inspiration.”
The curator continues pointing to the painting of the horse:
“Here I see a beautiful living horse, not superficially beautiful but the ghost of a beautiful soul, who wants to punch free of it’s dreary grey background with envelops it.”
Next he points to the complex painting of the world:
“I think if you took the horse and put it into this picture it would have the same compulsion.”

Original Ba Ba Black Sheep from 1744:
Bah, Bah, a black Sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes merry I have,
Three bags full,
Two for my master,
One for my dame,
None for the little boy
That cries in the lane
