You wouldn't understand
People who have copied others directly were, are and shall be again dead, but the inventive they sleep forever and cannot be dead. They will live forever in their minds exclusive footprint. They will never lack inspiration because it is instinctive. The imitators will be wise to understand what they are imitating because it could lead to their gross misfortune. I hope they are superstitious and like the imagination held up with no body the artists tear themselves open to look inside by whatever means they can to discover what lurks in their minds. The others can only follow.
I have had the luxury of meeting and knowing some truly brilliant artists/musicians whose very souls quiver and sear, leaving holes in arts future.
I look forward to an eventual look back at their early lives.
Women with a like mind will appreciate that art like sex is sacred and understand that art without sin is like a world without end.
Threats and promises come hand in hand, and power comes from a world of hate without conscious.
The most striking woman is often sullied and vampiric in nature. After all the vulgar and troubled consistently have the largest viewers.

A wise man once said all woman who want to appeal to ‘that type of man’ should wear high heels of at least 3inches minimum because of the ‘S’ shape curve the body is thrown into.
I admit I like the idea of a single point throwing my body a chaos of circles and arches.
These hypnotic ‘S’ shapes are a key to understanding everything.
I, as a woman try to utilise them as much as possible.
Knowing yourself helps to know the shapes of things to come.
All hail the ‘S’s’, sex, shoes, sun and salt etc, for after all we are only a human animal, and like the ‘S’ and the pig’s tale we will be pulled out straight only to coil back.
So hail all you like, but remember, the Catholics will insist that ‘you’ like the fortune teller, are destined to walk forward with a reverse head for all of eternity because you saw into the future in your past.
Influences bother me eternally I always like to remember what Kate Bush once said in an interview. She explained that in her art she was only trying to impersonate her idols. The women she wanted to be.
As a result of her compelling personality her interpretations happen to be original to us the viewer.
I think most artists can relate to this, and possibly the idea that you are only a series socialised influences resulting in an eventual confusion with originality.
I know I am, it seems to me that all we have to do is acknowledge those that stand pages before us, for us to land on our own first page.
