There is a new DVD coming out about being a mother and an artist. It is cleverly called: Who Does She Think She Is?
In conjunction with this, my husband sent me this quote from Einstein:
“Not everything that counts can be counted,
and not everything that can be counted counts…”
I do a fair amount of what I term unpaid work, too – volunteering on a Steering Committee, Advisory Committee, doing presentations, co-coordinating a program for a non-profit organization. And of course, mothering work is totally unpaid too.
And in writing, it is not only the paid work that is of value. Writing from the heart without editorial guidelines and deadlines can produce very important work. Alas, as with any art…unsold work doesn’t put food on the table! Aye, there’s the rub.
