It's now official-- sort of :)
"Poet and Philosopher"
The first time I recall being asked to state my occupation on a form, I was sixteen years old. I didn't want to put down "student", which was not a role I identified with.•
I thought awhile as how best to describe my true occupation. (I still find this a difficult question.)
Finally I wrote: "Poet, philosopher and rogue."
To my astonishment, the first two designations have now been declared official, you might say, by the French government, in a sweet endorsement by French Minister of Culture Catherine Tasca. (Fulltext in French.)
Note that I am not claiming to be either.
But still, two out of three's not bad...
