Woodstock, The Yellow Canary and the Artist

There is a theory that artists are useful to society because artists are supersensitive to currents of thoughts, yet to come,  the good the bad  and the ugly . artists are the harbinger of catastrophies very much like the yellow canary.  the canaries keel over in coal mines filled with poisonous gases:  they die to warn of the imminent danger.

…..ON THE OTHER HAND,  artists are keeling over by the thousands every day, and nobody seems to pay the least attention.

this line of thought came my way . do not remember from where or from whom. seems worthy to pass it on.
