What do you do?

I often pause when answering the question “what do you do?”.  It’s just every time I hear it I have to consider the audience and intention.  But when pressed for time, or simply to be as concise as possible I sometimes find myself just saying “I make things out of stuff”.

As annoying or elusive as this answer may seem, it’s true.  To pin myself down to one mode, medium, or occupation would be like saying every day was Tuesday or every month is November.  Now that I live in the Pacific Northwest, the introduction of seasons has not only made my yearly cycles more distinct, but I have learned that what I create flows with the seasons and this cycle cannot be stopped any easier than it would be to make the sun shine in Portland, OR on a dark January afternoon.
