Motion In The Ocean

I was raised to not be afraid of water; being taught how to swim, boat, fish and do almost anything you can imagine around any and every body of water you can name, I knew how to handle myself in any situation where I might be called upon to keep afloat.

Being comfortable around water is one thing, however, and being able to know what will happen to you is another story. In any large body of water, the external forces of nature are always active and they make it behave in ways that make sense but can't always be predicted.

Lately, my creative life has become that way quite a bit~ it makes sense what has been happening, but I am being pulled in ways I couldn't have predicted if I tried. That is neither bad nor good... it's just a statement of where I am right now.

One thing I could never have predicted is I have an opportunity to do some work with my brother on a very interesting project. On my end, it's been easy to write~ it's based on an idea I tossed out to my brother when we were eating together after the NY Comic Con that we banged around until we thought it had some merit. As I have been working on it, I have found that it has just flowed out onto the paper; not necessarily effortlessly, but with a minimum of real sweat. It's a story too good even to hint at yet, but what I can say about it is that it's a very poetic and lyrical black comedy. Hopefully my brother will hang in there and do the kind of art I know he's capable of on this one, because I know if we finish the whole story, it will be something quite special...

Time will tell.

Back to work for me... Talk soon.
