I set up a new meditation area while rearranging my apartment.  This means I’ve been sitting more, although I haven’t been sitting for very long intervals.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the repetition of themes throughout these comics.  It was something I used to be uncomfortable with.  I was afraid that it might bore people.  It seems the older I get, the more comfortable I am with repeating myself.  Oddly enough, it wasn’t until I accepted that I was in a repetitive rut that I was able to climb out of it to try something new.  I’m not sure if any of this makes sense.  I am very tired right now.

    I don’t think the repetition of themes is boring at all. The instant we stop worrying about life, art, purpose, work, and struggle, we might as well be dead. I think a great many artworks/novels can be summed up to be about these things.

    Also new reader here, just read through all the archives. Kudos on creating such an interesting/humorous and refreshing comic.
