I get asked all to often in small talk, “What do you do?”
I know people mean it innocently enough.
I take it offensively though, as though I could possibly explain in this artificial small talk the entire spectrum of things I do.
Or that somehow what I do from 9-5 defines “what I do”.
Who we are is not our past experiences, or our past failures, or our current passions.
Who we are is our destiny, and the journey to reach it with everything we are.
