Boot on the topic of love (Comic #551)

Some folks have gone through a rough time lately. This is especially for anyone who is in the trenches now.

And I kind of love that as I'm writing this post my playlist takes me to the fierce wonderful grief of Sia and has now gone to The Doubleclicks "Now Is The Time".


Boot: When I was young and sad and powerless I looked for a rock on the ground and I found one.

It was smooth and warm and independent. If I lost it it would be fine without me.

I couldn't fail it or contaminate it with how bad and wrong I felt. And

And there it was. I could hold it in my hand.

Sometimes that's all you need.
