life (n.) Look up life at Dictionary.com
Old English life (dative lif) "existence, lifetime, way of life, condition of being a living thing, opposite of death," from Proto-Germanic *libam (cognates: Old Norse lif "life, body," Dutch lijf "body," Old High German lib "life," German Leib "body"), properly "continuance, perseverance," from PIE *leip- "to remain, persevere, continue; stick, adhere" (see leave (v.)). Much of the modern range of meanings was present in Old English. Meaning "property which distinguishes living from non-living matter" is from 1560s. Sense of "vitality, energy" is from 1580s. Extended 1703 to "term of duration (of inanimate objects)." Source www.etymonline.com...

I've actually been writing for a while now, and have toyed with off-beat forms of expression. I'm also a fine arts painter. And I just want to warn people, if you thought that this one made sense, the next one may not make sense at all. For me it's not really about making sense, it's about pure expression. I dig deep into my mind. It's pretty strange in there.
Life has a poem-like substance. Life asks rhetorical questions but doesn't wait for an answer before moving on. Life seeking life, feedback, distortion, re-assembly, evolutionary by design... Life is the signature of the artist-self applied to the unfinished work.
