Just a single panel today, a continuation of the single panel scenes from last strip. I’m working on a larger strip for Sunday, so I bled off some of my work time for that.
She’s not handing out packs of cigarettes is she?
I’m hopeful you’ll read this- I remember that you’re generally able to, and I wanted to say something real quick. Life has taught me multiple times you never know when it’s going to be too late to say something, and I’d like to say it.
You changed my life. I don’t think you meant to; normally if you’re looking to say a world-changing statement you do do with art. I think there is a certain poetry to melodies of life, and that everything someone does can be a kind of art. But I’m getting off topic.
You helped me that one time I accidentally wrote my email address as my name. You responded to some of my comments. I got the feeling that, being my honest self, I wasn’t needing a nuisance. That good feeling had stuck around with me. I love your work; the stories, characters, and backgrounds you make are complex and beautiful and speak in a gentle, firm way to something deeper, but always I remember the living soul behind them. I remember that you, not knowing anything about me beyond what I put down (and I never have much confidence really in what I put down), treated me kindly and like I wasn’t a bother. I strangely began to look for that in other areas of my life, and stand firm more often when I was bullied. I know there are lots of inspiring things out there for us to gain insight from, but no one else has shown me personally the same level of decency.
Maybe take that last statement as a testament to your good graces, and not just that somehow you manage to be less busy than them (because, let’s be real here: you know you’re not any less busy).
I hope things can go well for you. I mean, I hope that even should calamity come to pass that you have a reason to think “eh, it’s not so bad”. I hope you smile warmly.
Merry Hallow-Thanks-Mas in this festive time of year.
I just want to say that Jake is my (one of) best friend that I haven’t met in real life… yet. Jake does their best to be good. I am glad you have felt that, because Jake is definitely my pal for some real time ticking trauma.
Jake is a force of good in this world, at least to me, and I am glad they have been there for you too.
That’s really nice of you to say. Thanks. I appreciate hearing that.
I hope things go well for all of us.
Beware mermaids bearing gifts.
She put fish in those candies.
