RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
my identity I do not think is linked solely to my job. I sell tibetan art from 2 monasteries in eastern Tibet. I identify with the volunteer work I do for a tibetan NGO. this is my passion. This is what I promote, not my business. I have been a spook, a furniture maker, a car salesman, a business consultant, in each of these occupations I worked with and helped community service organizations, my occupation is a tool, my identity is what I do to help others.
it always bothers me when people ask what I do and I know that they are asking for an occupation, as if to judge you by your occupation. No one asks about my passions.
