I came across this account of a RL diplomat who does part of his work through song. He struck me as a kind of real life Bard. I thought it was inspiring in the sense that in a world of art created for whim and to be consumed at whim, some of the songs he wrote were about people who died and were heard by their families - a while different world from the world of whim. It made me think of art/writing that genuinely does matter. It might help inspire writing.
