Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #754 - Wondermark - "In Which Trouble Is Shot"


Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #754 - Wondermark - "In Which Trouble Is Shot"

Hi Mom,

So, I found a new web comic: WONDERMARK. I created an rss feed for it on my reader page (The Free Dictionary) and I have been reading it as often as time permits.

I like it's style. The antique-style harkening back to the Victorian era or early 20th Century reminds me of the vintage Sears and Roebuck catalogue that I still own (and probably need to purge). This is a clever and smart comic.

I figured today was a good day for a quick post, a comic, and some life highlights.

Sometimes this whole moving thing feels like the concept depicted in this comic.

The feedback loop of anxiety, pain, and yet relief and gain, in purging stuff, packing stuff, selling a house, buying a house, planning a trip, planning a new life, saying goodbye to an old life, coping with mounting stress, anxiety, pain, and joy, often feels like this situation in this comic.

"But what if I don't have a torx wrench?"

Yesterday, I did not accomplish as much packing as I hoped to accomplish, and so mounting anxiety.

However, I did watch two movies with my wife -- Jane Doe and Get Out -- and that felt good. I did some packing, but I also did more work for my jobs to better clear the decks to pack a lot today. I went to the grocery store. I brought my wife dinner. I did laundry. I took the dogs for a walk. I taught two classes.

At least, millions of people who need it still have affordable health care.

My problems seem minor compared to that issue.

Progress is slow. But I am making my way.

"If franchise performs poorly, calibrate with torx wrench."

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
