A Metaphor for Life

Juggling with children underfoot (or in a backpack carrier) is a metaphor for life. Just replace "juggling clubs" with "responsibilities" and there you have it.

Juggling with Kids from Ben Hatke on Vimeo.



I took this little video with my laptop up at the campo above Gravagna. I left that set of clubs in Italy. They were good clubs and I miss them. I've found that not all juggling clubs are created equal.

So that New York schedule I keep mentioning? I'll post it tomorrow. Promise.

Wow, your wife is super-talented! Juggling with a baby on her back, that must be interesting. Not to say anything of yourself, Ben. :) I wish I could juggle.

Pretty impressive, the way you switch back and forth between the two of you...

So cool -- do your kids realize how cool you and your wife are?? or do they think every kid has parents who can juggle? :)
