I think it would be wonderful world, if rather than telling people we meet what we did for work, we told them what we considered ourselves in life.
Imagine how many poets, artists and craftsmen there would be.
"What do you do?"
"I am a fisher, and sometimes a cook."
"I am a beat poet in my car while I drive."
"I imagine things then try to draw them."
"I am the best space pirate in the internet."
