Photographers' work is often their life.
It turns out that there is no escaping work. More and more our home and work lives are merging. But with all situations, you can view it two ways, and in choosing one view over another you can really free yourself from feeling bad about your work-home balance. I picked this up on Twitter, as tweeted by Guy Kawasaki, and it helps settle my concerns.
“The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both.”
