Joensuu, Finland, recently seemed to double its size with visitors — in hosting the 33rd annual European Juggling Convention. Some incredible shows (the fire juggling was my favorite), but what was most interesting to me was the jugglers themselves.
Walking on the street, it was fun to see the visitors with baggy pants and dreadlocks, or top hats and vests on. It was interesting to see how many there were, and to observe how even though they spoke all different languages (French, German, Spanish, etc), they had developed at least somewhat of a shared look & identity.
I started to wonder more about how people come to think about themselves and their identity (e.g. “I am a juggler”).
So just for fun — give your First few answers to this, without thinking too much:
— Who are you?
— And why do you think so?
