Hi, my name is…well, that’s already a tough one. I’ve been variously known as Kai, Jinpa, Khai, Troc, and other things. And am comfortable with most of them, still. Mostly. You’re welcome to call me whatever you like.
This site is about the side of me that is ‘work.’
Work. To me that always sounded tedious. Following the advice of a teacher who used to say, “You know your true work because it’ll feel like play,” I tried calling it ‘play’ for myself for a while. Definitely made it somewhat more joyful. Unfortunately it doesn’t lend itself to communication, much.
Recently I found that in order to counteract rising pride at certain activities I needed another term again. And ‘minion’ seemed to fit the bill. Whether we’re actually working within a hierarchy or other organizational context where we are accountable to others, or whether we are completely free and only following the whims of our own ego, we’re minions.
Ok, I’ll speak for myself only, no offense intended.
To distinguish the various areas of my minion-like endeavors, you’ll find traces of Ogminion, Adminion, Sysadminion, Bizminion, or Miminion on these pages.
