I'll keep this brief: a few weeks ago, my Mom had a stroke. A week ago, she passed away. I've spent a lot of time at the hospital, sitting quietly, waiting, sometimes talking, wondering if she heard me, sometimes just reading quietly. It was a little like my Mothers Day 2013 comic, except, at that time, she was just recuperating from, let's just say, illnesses related to age.
I have wanted to keep my mind occupied, but regular comics just weren't going to happen. I'd like to have a couple done before I start posting them again, rather than proceeding if fits and starts. I need to move on and keep doing what I was doing and what I like doing.
Mom would have wanted me to do that.
