Being a parent is like being an artist

I love Jerry Salts description on the correlation I never realized existed between these two very demanding roles:

"Being a parent is already very much like being an artist. It means always lugging things around, living in chaos, doing things that are mysterious or impossible or scary. As with art, children can drive you crazy all day, make you wish all this could go away. Then in a single second, at any point, you are redeemed with a moment of intense, transformative love."

To give you quick overview on how I manage being a parent, working a full time job, being a husband and having a creative outlet on the side: It mostly involves a lot of sacrifice on the social aspect. I really don't have much time to spend with friends as I would like. As for the work I do shoot, I attend to it on weekends while editing any of it after 8:30am once the kids have been put to bed. The entire dynamic is a little challenging but I don't think I would have it any other way because it's a routine I've adapted to.
