Here’s a little piece I plan to use as a Sonic Boom fan comic cover, “Third Wheel” or “Three’s a Crowd” (I haven’t decided which title to go with yet). Anyway, this fan comic won’t be ready for quite some time but I thought I finish up the sketch today and post as a Valentine’s treat!
Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shh’d. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to be truly affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a raindrop, a teakettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep. Feel it all - look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
Well, you know, I guess it’s ‘cause I was sitting in a deli and reading Dorian Gray and a guy comes up to me and asks me about it and… now he’s my husband. (…) What if I’d gone to the movies? What if I had gone somewhere else for lunch? What if I’d gotten there 10 minutes later? It was meant to be.
