Lifestyle craftwork

There’s a difference between vocational working and having a job. One is an occupational calling to live a certain working lifestyle regardless of anything else, whilst the other is to ‘do‘ a job that makes money to live, but carries with it scant reward of fulfilment.

I think vocational working is to find sense and meaning in your work. The work has a sense of belonging to you and you to it. The other makes little sense and often none. With money the single outcome, a life can be unlived. Vocational means life, regardless of the actual occupation. I chose craft in that it chose me and we agreed. There was no resistance.

I see most base income and recognition as a basis for future – it doesn’t work.
