I’ve never been good at answering the tough questions, like, “What’ve you been up to lately?” Umm… ”Nothing.” While that isn’t quite true, my mind nevertheless goes completely blank.
And heaven forbid someone says, “Tell me about yourself.” For one thing, I always feel like I’m supposed to have a single answer, a kind of life summation sentence. And I just can’t bring myself to say, “Well, I love photography, I’m a
blogger writer, a podcaster, and I’d really like to finally start that book that’s been in my head for ten years.” It feels like I’m presenting an image of a self that only exists in my own mind – which is stupid, because all of those things are true. Perhaps it’s just because I’m afraid that my work can’t stand up to the scrutiny, that someone will look at my photos or read my writing or listen to my podcast and say, “That girl sure is kidding herself”.
But I hope you don’t think so.
