STAY SAFE COMICS UPDATE

#02 of a couple so far...

#STAYsafeCOMICS 2: Electric Bogaloo

HELLO AGAIN......

ANOTHER DAY,

ANOTHER 'WTF' [ WHAT-THE-FRAZZLE ] STATUS OF YET ANOTHER OF THE 'THIS WILL NEVER CHANGE' THINGS WE HOLD DEAR.....WHAT WAS IT??.......YOU CAN PICK BECAUSE IT SEEMS WE CAN ALL RELATE, WHATEVER THE '________" IS... 

 

         .....SORRY, WE ARE not yelling here, WE JUST FORGOT TO PUSH THE CAPS-LOCK BUTTON & WE'D HAVE TO GO BACK & RE-TYPE ALL OF THIS, WHICH [SINCE WE SOMETIMES WRITE OUT OF ORDER] IS A LOT OF WORK TO DO JUST FOR THE FOUR [....three?...TWO?...] PEOPLE READING THIS....... 

[.....we are about to test your patience...if it gets too much, skip a bit, OK?...]

            OR.... MAYBE WE ARE CAUGHT IN OUR OWN WEB OF FUSTRATION THAT INVITED SUPERSTITION & SELF-QUESTIONING ALONG FOR A PURELY PERSONAL SUBTLE FEAR-MONGERING PARTY-FOR-ONE, WHICH,...WHEN TRAPPED IN, SOMEWHAT AGAINST OUR WILL, WE FIND HARD TO ESCAPE....

     SOMETIMES, NOT OFTEN, IT'S A BIT EASIER TO MAKE OUTSIDE-YOURSELF EXCUSES, STRATIGICALLY ATTACHED TO SOMETHING OR SOMEONE ELSE, LIKE IN THIS CASE, 'you', WHO'S READING THIS 'SELF-PINPOINTED-DIATRIBE', AS A REASON TO ALLOW US AN 'OUT' WITHOUT COMPROMISING OUR OWN, AT TIMES, FRAGILE EGO....

    SO, IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF 'you', BECAUSE WE CAN EMPHATICALLY FEEL YOUR COLLECTED STRUGGLES [...that's called feeding the [our] ego b-4 diminishing it..& that's not very brave....but it's a step...], WE GIVE OURSELF PERMISSION TO RELEase ourselves from that mini-addiction we had....

          All THAT aside, most of us might agree, these are trying times indeed, with interuptions of our lives unheard of before, eruptions from places, things & people beyond our control causing our own flare ups, and disruptions unquestionably unique from just a short time ago....these are TEST-worthy far greater than any examinations we have ever had to face....

.

Al-Anon Family Group's Three C's say,

"I didn't cause it, I can't control it and I can't cure it,"

          ...but that doesn't mean that it's any fun when you step in it, or have it poured all around you it seems there is no safe spot to look, let alone walk... The coronavirus currently is causing all sorts of mayhem in the minds of those who are prone to reactionary thoughts and anxiety, so finding proactive yet meaningful distractionary tactics to occupy time is encouraged and needed...

WE ENCOURAGE YOU to SHARE YOUR VOICE, through the idea of STAY SAFE COMICS or any other platform, because it is about the collective US, & WHEN WE SHARE, WE LEARN about the JOYS of being heard, WHICH TEACH AN EVEN MORE GRACIOUS & HUMBLING LESSON, the respectful, compassionate, & empathetic BENEFITS OF LISTENING TO UNDERSTAND one another...

.....a tough place to aspire to reach, but well worthy of the grasping.....

If you don't agree, that's great, because that's what communication, conversations, & COMICS ARE FOR, THE SHARING OF IDEAS, THOUGHTS, & OPINIONS, and most of us can relate to having those,

but maybe not sharing them....

....in comics...

yet....  :)

...more...

PS....Sorry for PUSHING YOUR BUTTONS earlier........Sure, maybe, in hindsight, it metaphorically represents:

"the things we all separately hold dear that are locked inside of us, seals of security that when breached, personally define our vulnerabilities, that, when we are 'in-LOCKDOWN', can scare stories that need to be told out of us"

......but that's not what we meant, because THIS writer is not that smart!

......& it would have nothing to do with....

"the encouragement of the courage it takes to share one's experienced insights in pictures with a few words, or words with a few pictures, through the very easy labeling safe zone of Stay SAFE Comics [ #StaySAFEcomics ]", right?

....but if it did...

It might be a wonderful safe place to have a discussion around the ideas of:

 ' How far away do we put the fears we feel the most? ',

 ' The ones we think will hurt us the most, could they somehow be the most far from fear once our will allows us to call for their release? ',

' Could what we hide become an essential emblem of our future pride?',

.....this wasn't meant to be a mirror held up to the possible higher-pay-grade-than-us definition of self fulfilling prophecy overflowing a cup formerly so spaciously-challenged it was avoiding the burden of seeing on display its intimidating, yet inevitable, immense own talents...really, it wasn't.....

...that''s what ART is for...

......With practice, using the tool of Stay SAFE Comics, our minds can counter the actions of self distancing, bridge the gap by finding new therapeutic activities to enhance the idea we are not in this alone, but alone in this greater good towards being stronger apart...

Maybe, in states of self isolation, reflections of our emotions on a simple page will take us to places they've never sent us to before....

....they most certainly will for others....

"Comics are capable of being anything the mind can imagine. I consider it a 
great privilege to be a cartoonist. I love my work, and I am grateful for the 
incredible forum I have to express my thoughts. People give me their attention 
for a few seconds every day, and I take that as an honor and a responsibility. I 
try to give readers the best strip I'm capable of doing.? "
------Bill Watterson quote

(American Author of the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes)
