What are you an expert in?

What does it mean to you to be an expert in general or in that thing?

I've been pondering this one. My first level response to what an expert is is someone who holds a deep level of knowledge in a particular field. As such it's fairly easy to have been an expert in something but have that expertise fade. In that sense I have been an expert in United States marital law and in varietal coffees and the brewing thereof. My second level response, which comes up before I can decide what I'm an expert in, is that an expert holds a higher level of knowledge in a field than most people. Given this, I can't honestly claim that I am an expert in cooking, for example.

I am highly skilled and practiced in a number of things: home cooking, pastry (particularly short pastries and cakes), customer service theory and analysis, management theory, customer service and management themselves

I am an expert at being me, living in my body and doing my best to embody my ethics.
