I struggled with answering this question forever. I felt I needed to answer the question. Business mouth pieces will say, “you’ve got to define yourself so people can identify with what you sell and then buy from you”. “Ok”, says I. “maybe I’ll do that for a while…. Nah, doesn’t fit”.

These days I still don’t know how to answer it. Im lots of things you see. I’m a piece of all of it, all at the same time. To say I’m one thing says I’m not the other and that feels like I’m dishonoring myself. It’s probably easier for me to say what I’m not to be honest.

I write mostly these days, for creative expression. I don’t know why, there’s no reason per se. I’m compelled to. That’s the way it feels. I’ve got stories I want to share. I draw too, but not too much these days. I’m an electrician during the day. That pays the bills, for now.

Thanks for the inclusion @jak.e (you don’t pop up when I add your username. Not sure why🤔)
