This post speaks to my current frame of mind. Why be one thing?
What titles would I like to hold? I'm a lawyer but I don't want to be identified as such. I'm now a mother, but I don't identify as such and it sounds foreign when someone else assigns me to the job. What do I do? What titles might I carry?
I am a writer.
I am a photographer.
But I don't do those things regularly and are any of them what I am? The last five are a joke and the second one is hardly at a professional level. Photography is the scrapbooking of the yuppy set. I should probably focus on the writing identity because I've strayed from it and I don't know anything else that can free me from the hamster wheel. I have to write the exit. I have to write to write the checks.
