Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “If a person sweeps streets for a living, he should sweep them as Michelangelo painted, as Beethoven composed music, as Shakespeare wrote his plays.” That makes me stop and think. How do I fold clothes, or set a table, or even walk and move about? Do I do all these things with grace? Am I aware of the artistry of every moment? Did I fly airplanes with the beauty of Beethoven’s ninth symphony? Maybe. Sometimes. And now that writing is my primary occupation, do I try to polish my words so they become meaningful phrases that last? How great it would be if all our works were works of art!
