Yesterday someone asked me what I was up to. And I said ‘nothing’. ‘I am doing nothing’, and I smiled an apologizing smile. Later on my way home I thought how I came up with that insane answer. I may do ‘nothing much’ in the light of our economy and in status driven eyes. But my days are filled to the rafters with care, love, play and thought. I am taking care of my children, of our house, of our dog, of our life. I am helping my husband make his film and I am slowly working on a project I intensely believe in. That does not sound like nothing to me, it sounds like a whole lot of very good stuff. Surprisingly it all things I feel I have to excuse myself for. How did all these ideas ever got into my head?
