With a sign this beautiful, anything is possible. Ask Harkins, what do you do?
Harkins is a florist.
I had a conversation with our friend John the other night. He’s a therapist, and was down from Vermont to visit for a night. We were talking about the challenge and deep worth of finding the words to express what you do. That in some ways, being able to say what you do is the first step to really taking it out into the world.
So I’ve been giving it a shot.
I’m a writer. (That’s the short answer)
I write about food and family and how to live well on fewer resources. I write about empowerment in the kitchen, and about dodging other peoples assessments and judgments about what you should or should not eat/cook/feed your family. I think that you know what you want cook, and if you need a friend with whom to share that bottle of wine while you try to figure it out, here I am.
That’s what I do.
What I do is a work in progress, I think.
But I have to say that getting this all into a few sentences is not only useful, it’s harder than I thought it would be. And I wonder, I mean, I have to ask, if you might be willing to try…
what do you do?
