    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
