      Which “Flag” Are You Waving?  

      “At a road construction stop, one flagman was of good spirits, per my reading of his face; and the other was emanating bad vibes. The job ain’t great, but I was reminded of Dr. King’s declaration, one of the few I’ve committed to memory:  

      ‘If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’  

      This (to me at least) doesn’t mean one shouldn’t aspire to more than a flagman’s job - but it does mean that we can literally change the world and change our surroundings by a unilateral effort to bring a certain attitude to what we do. ”
