I was at a reunion last weekend. 44 years since I was an exchange student with 19 other people. I was wearing some of my jewelry as I always do, and had listed my "profession" as a jewelry artisan in the update material. Several people admired my work, and a couple of people want to purchase things. I felt sort of awkward. Of course I'll sell to them, it is how I make my money these days, but still felt funny. Anyone else relate to this? I'm proud of my work, but I wonder if this is a mercy purchase, and if it is, why should I care anyway????
