I also learned at an early age that I should do work before play.
Flash forward 40 years.
And here I am in this place where my work *is* my play, you know? I would rather do my art (which is my work) than almost anything else in the world. For that reason, it feels very much like play. Which is why I have a conundrum. Since my work feels like play, cleaning the house, managing the biz end (paperwork, ugh) seems like work. And if I do all my work first (which is pretty much an impossible task), I have no time to play or do my *real* work. You know what I mean????
No wonder I am walking around in a perpetual state of confusion.
