looking through photos...

when you feel the need to define yourself,
do you?
I never felt right defining myself as an artist,
but now, strangely, I do.
I remember someone saying,
"you're not a professional photographer,
until you pay your mortgage doing that."
it seemed to make sense.
I don't know.
So I sit here looking at photos,
trying to figure out how to "brand" and market myself,
how to launch a career.
Can't get a domain name with my name.
And as I make a list of all the things to do,
I feel like I'm at the base of a really big mountain,
with a really long hike ahead of me.
And the brief reassurances to the ego,
are quickly brushed aside by my self doubt.
