Welcome all to the dance craze that's sweeping the Universe - THE BEDDY! If you're not all caught up on the "Legion of Bugs" storyline - check out the full story (so far!) by clicking on the gallery to the right! Enjoy!.... and DO THE BEDDY! Video creation by Elliot Pantuso.
I found this the other day on the facebook and it really spoke to me and all my perfectionist tendencies. I spent so much time trying to be perfect that I couldn't get started. But, last May, I did and I recently celebrated creating, finishing, and posting 200 comic strips since. I look back and sometimes see only the mistakes, the things I'd fix and so on but I also see the accomplishment and that makes all the work worth it. Thanks for dropping in and best to you for a great day!
Good morning all and Happy Friday! I'm dashing this out before my temp job today - had set a potentially difficult goal for myself of producing five strips this week, but, sadly, so far, have only managed to do four. The fifth, another Nanny Noodle Legs, was part of her "waking up" trilogy ... but once I laid down the dialogue, it didn't really work. In the meantime, I'd created this graphic of her exterior of her bathroom. For some reason, I think she's obsessed with Bobby Sherman. In an earlier strip, where she appears in Angie's thought bubble, she's carrying her dog, which she's named Bobby Sherman. Not that anyone would remember that, but I kind of like the idea of this older woman liking the 1960s heartthrob. So I used an album cover of his as her shower curtain. I'm not sure how I'd feel about having Bobby Sherman (or anyone) stare at me while I was doing my business in the bathroom, but we know that these types of shower curtains do exist (maybe not Bobby Sherman, of course).
Anyway, I don't know if I'll actually get to use this in a MEMO at this point but I liked it so much I wanted to share it an any event. Thanks, all for being supportive of my efforts to create this little MEMO world. Your likes and comments mean a great deal to me and appreciate them here, on FB and on Instagram. Have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend!
Good morning all - and happy Tuesday. Despite all the scary stuff happening out in the world, or, maybe because of it, life must go on. We must be resilient!
Today, I start what I think/hope will be a new era of my life and while I'm not ready/able to talk about it just yet, know that I will when I can.
Think of it like this: last summer, we grew a variety of plants - some decorative, some for cooking (and you all know how much we love cooking "in our tiny place" see my Instagram account @jacobandrewaltenburg). Some of them did well, some did not.
The tarragon was one of the ones that did just fine in the limited light of the space between our building and the one next door to us.
This morning we noticed that the tarragon is growing. It's just a little sprig of green, really, but it's a promising start to the next growing season. Life is like that. There's a little sprig of possibility and you nurture it. You give it light, air, food, and attention and, with a little luck, it'll grow into something larger.
With that in mind, enjoy this tune from MOANA, "How Far I'll Go" which seems particularly fitting for today.
Today's video is called "How To Narrate Your Life Story" and is a wonderful short about forgiving yourself your mistakes and reframing your story about what you learned, rather than how badly you fucked up. It made me cry and I hope that it has some meaning for you as well.
