Oh Dennett, I am so there with you. I have been carrying the world on my shoulders since I was just a child. Babysitting from 4 pm to midnight at 12 years old to bring the pay home to mama because it was a rough year on the farm and it was always a rough year on the farm.
And then I was the mama, and a single one at that and the divorce needed paying for along with everything else.
I so need to just make more time for creativity. Because we can’t find more time, we must make it. Your piece pushed a couple of hot buttons. We are not alone in feeling this way, I know. ❤
