balancing act

People are always asking me about balance. How do I balance life and kids and making art. How do I still find time for the blog? How do I still find time to be an organizer of flock & gather? Some days I answer that life finds a way, and that at times I’ve been more productive than before kids due to limited time and a greater desire to use that time wisely. Other days….well other days are like yesturday when I poured some casts only to be so distracted that I completely forgot about them and discovered them three hours too late – rather than five minutes after they were cast which was their proper casting time. Sigh. Some days it is too much. Some days put me back rather than forward. Some days I question it all. But most days….most days it is all worth it. I’m living the dream.
