The item immediately below this one, and a few words at Minute Particulars, caused me to reflect briefly on how wonderful it would be if we took the word "profession" in its sense of the verb form, to "declare openly" and "make vows," that is, in a sense where we declare ourselves as in a "profession of faith," instead of merely as the "opposite of amateur." In other words, if we could resort to the old sense of viewing whatever we do in life as a vocation.
