I said: I enjoy painting and writing. :-D Sometimes I feel like I am not doing enough productive work though! I wonder if my art and writing have any real value to anyone other than me and if I am being selfish to do this.
Susan said: I've concluded that the notions of productivity and selfishness are just so much blather. Do what you love. If you believe in God, why would she put people on Earth to do things that make them unhappy? And if you don't believe, then we're here on Earth as just one in a million species, destined to evolve into and perhaps out of being, each of us doing the best we can with the deck we're dealt, our only obligations to others being what we decide to undertake of our own free will. So why not do our best to enjoy and appreciate the gift of life while it lasts? (Just realized I'm talking to myself, by the way!)
I said: Thanks, I needed that! (But I still need to go to the bank and do some other work, LOL! Be a Mom.) Click image to view larger.
