    WE LIVE COPIED LIVES - A four-word sentence that has so many possible meanings! It could refer to a lack of creativity in people, or it could refer to a code of behavior handed to an individual by a church, or a corporation, in any case, at some level, you are not living your unique life, But the artist does fulfill her/himself by following their art where it leads them The artists possess a special soul quality of integrity (at least they should, some just wing it, still others work at creating a soul for themselves. Keats called Earth the place Soul-making. . (Report) Reply

    I love upon the first read you see the first 2 lines seen opposed to one another. But as you read it again you see that life creates life and the last line is so true, some names will live on forever in infamy or fame either way true artists become immortal through the impact of their thoughts and feelings expressed. Great piece! (Report) Reply
