Webster's defines a nun as: a woman belonging to a religious order; one under solemn vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience
My definition is slightly different.
To me, a nun is someone who devotes their entire lives, to the very core of their being, to something greater than themselves. They are perseverant, unstoppable, passionate, unwavering... focused like a magnifying glass though-out their entire lives, they are the true believers.
To me, Hillary Clinton is the Mother Superior of my definition of a nun.
But all nuns don't have to give selflessly to the world like Hillary does. They don't all have to be warriors against planetary problems.
They can give in other ways... though music, art, writing, science, fashion, dance, sports, acting or whatever their cause or life-passion is.
Another one of my favorite nuns is Siouxsie Sioux.
Siouxsie has consistently given the world excellent music with a very particular aesthetic for over 30 years. She doesn't fool around, she never lets you down. She is a nun of music.
Who do you consider to be a nun?
I'd love to hear from you!
