|Cartoon by Stilton's Dad!|
Moreover, I'm currently busy digitizing absolute reams of documents from my late parents, including lots of cartoons drawn by my Dad - including the bucolic apocalypse seen above. I'm genuinely not sure if the intent of the cartoon is showing how disaster can strike when you least expect it...or if it's meant to say that, even in the worst of circumstances, there can be a benefit to staying mindful of the good things around us. Come to think of it, I adhere to both beliefs simultaneously.
It's bittersweet work going through those cartoons. Lots of funny stuff and good memories, but each page is also a reminder that he's not here anymore - though as exemplified by this blog (and Johnny Optimism, for that matter) at least his unusual sense of humor lives on.
The Hope n' Change comments section is open for business, and there's plenty to talk about. See you there! -Stilton
