I enjoy people who are artistic. People who are able to produce works of art through painting, sculpture, and music inspire me.
But, there is another form of artistry which is just as meaningful. I am referring to people like Francis of Assisi, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa - not artists in the traditional sense, but persons who through the nobility of their lives, color the world around them.
I know people whose lives are a work of art. Wherever they go they radiate light. They enter a dark room, a sickroom, room where loneliness or hopelessness hangs like a pall, and almost immediately there is light and hope.
Most of us will never be artists or musicians. But, we can live lives that color the world around us for good.
