Can music, painting, poetry and art in general allow a genuine escape from the humdrum, working reality of the day. How come we need to free our 'spiritual' selves to reach this ideal perfect place of near bliss?

Yes, the experiences we all go through can greatly contribute to works of art and creativity, good point. Real life may be tough but without challenges, emotionally, artists might not express what it is they have inside.
As humans our ability to laugh and appreciate humour (humor) sets us apart from the animal world and gives us freedom of a kind. It connects us to the real world but also releases us. I like your use of the words magic and beauty, good partners.
Interesting how you relate the 'realities we face each day' with the state of our health. You suggest a negative influence which implies you think writing may be therapeutic. Could be a fruitful idea.
