I know a man who ran a pickle-factory for decades. He writes poetry now, and he publishes the poems of others.
I know a woman who was invited to play bass in B.B. King's band. She became a pastor instead.
I know a man who played drums for a famous rock-band in the 1970s. He's an electrician.
There's this other woman I know--she worked as a spy. She teaches kindergarten.
And so on. You know people like this, too.
When people change what they do, do they change who they are?
This question is like an empty gift-box--let's wrap it in red paper. The gift-box is for you. Here you go! Now you'll put the answer to the question inside, and to help fill up the box, you may of course elaborate on the yes, the no, the maybe, and/or the I-don't-know.
It's terribly impolite of me to give you--virtually, at that--an empty gift-box, and for that, I apologize.
