The Work of Beauty, Part 2: All the Freaky People
Today, in the traditionally hippie part of town, I saw a bumper sticker on a custom-painted car which read: "All the Freaky People Make the Beauty of the World," and decided that, when I've learned how to drive, I would stick one on my own car. I went online to find out where I could purchase one, and discovered that the text is a line from a song by Michael Franti and Spearhead called "Stay Human." When I read the lyrics and heard the song, I wanted the bumper sticker even more.
