fountain vs. fire hose

I never thought producing a short film would take up so much time. Or maybe I didn’t have that much free time in the first place. I don’t know, but one thing’s for sure, I don’t have any now.

It’s really something that’s given me pause. I felt I was at a place in my life, where I could take on the responsibilities to produce a film and still be able to provide a steady stable environment for the kids and spouse. Instead I seem to be running around like a chicken, constantly short changing one area for the other. Nothing’s quite done, and everything is mixing up. - Find a parent to take kids with them to school functions, Get the film insurance paid. Don’t forget that one kid stays home for Columbus Day, but not the other one, forgot a location meeting, reschedule a kids dentist appointment. Out of milk. Always, it seems I’m out of milk!

I thought I would be sipping from the fountain of knowledge, but instead I’m drinking from a fire hose!

  1. the fountain of knowleged is over-rated, so I heard, I've never found it, but that firehose, that lead you to the fountain of fun...
    from one single mom filmmaker to a married mom with two kids filmmaker - this crazy stuff is ALWAYS better than baking cookies for the school garage sale.. ; )
