On the Sharing of Talents

There is something simple and beautiful about this group walking down the street sharing their music with the world. Doesn't it make you a little jealous of their ability to bring a bit of joy into peoples' lives as they wander down the street?

I like my profession, usually. I like how I can sometimes diagnose the right disease, and occasionally fix their complaint. Not the "occasional" and "sometime" aspect, but that is just how medicine works, unfortunately. I don't really enjoy some of the insights my training gives me as I walk down the street, and I definitely don't like that I can't stroll down the street like the band Beirut spreading that happiness. But I'm awfully glad that others can.
