I’d like to thank all the little people… Page 3

Damn that was so much effort. I’m getting a little misty eyed. And to think I’ve been making sites instead of comics for the past three years after writing all this. I had to turn and chase the dollar.

But I don’t have a calling anymore. I have lost my compass and know not what I should be doing with myself. I can’t pay bills making comics, but I can’t change the world making web sites. I look back and see the women I admired four years ago still struggling to make ends meet with these dreams. They have trouble holding their families and lives together if they don’t have a strong, bread-winning partner. I got my surgery. I can afford my house and car. But it’s a hollow victory on many levels because I don’t feel like I’m helping make the world anymore.

Damn these life decisions.

    Who says you can’t change the world? A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step: every little bit you do, every comic you eke out the time for when you can, will be something that will help change the world just a little bit.

    That’s what I think, anyway.

    You’re still helping me and many others I’m sure. Just because you don’t feel like you’re making a difference or helping the world it doesn’t mean that you’re not. That’s one of the many life lessons I’ve come to learn and understand through your work. So thank you Rachel, for everything.

      Thank you :) Funny, after reading this 6 months after writing my comment, I’ve come to think I can still do great things.
