Life as art

'So I said to him, you can live your life as if it were an expression of art.'

My friend Arthur's eyes twinkled over his rhubarb crumble.

'And he just stood there, and then he said – I've never thought of that.'

'But it's so true,' I said.

'Exactly – and in that way, everyone can be an artist. And in fact, the world right now needs people to be artists.'

Carpe diem, my friends.
