This is a picture of a mural next the the tram lines in New Orleans. An otherwise bland wall has been transformed into a riot or color and expression. Sometimes art reminds us of who we really are - those who are to bring beauty into an often tired and fretful world. It would be easy to dash by a plain old grey wall, but this slows you down, makes you take the picture. That is one of the things we do for God in the world - slow people down, allow them to be present, by being present ourselves.
