Hi Nicholas. Thanks for your thoughts. Yes, I also aim to be not caught by the two extremes. Working part-time has been a good balance. But every now and then something comes along which challenges my status quo and then I have to weigh up the options to make sure I have enough creative time in my life. I think it is good to be open to lots of options as to how creativity can be expressed. Then we don’t fall into the trap of “it has to be like this.”
