On work - M. Darusha Wehm
People often ask us if we’re on vacation or working. They mean, working for pay, which we are not. But we are working, often pretty hard. It’s hard to explain that we work on things that people on land would usually hire a pro for, but we have to do it all. Work is more than just getting paid for somthing. Writers and other artists know that, often working very hard on a piece that may or may not ever bring in cash. It’s too bad we’re all so hung up on whether or not a person is getting paid for the work they do.
