This morning I woke up with a tiny depression hangover so I tweeted that I was feeling a little out-of-sorts and to please send pictures of your pets and within minutes I was staring at thousands of sweet furry and feathered and scaly faces and then twitter was like, “You’re receiving a lot of notifications. Would you like to add a filter to limit responses?” and I was like, “STOP INTERFERING, TWITTER. I NEED THESE FACES” and then I looked at every single one and imagined scritching their foreheads and rubbing their bellies and whispering, “Who is a good one? It’s you. It’s so you” and then I thought that it’s sort of amazing that even when I’m feeling lonely or sad I’m still not alone and how wonderful it is that you’re okay with me having a long-distance love affair with your pets.
That was a very long run-on sentence but I can’t help it and if you need a pick-me-up I suggest going to see all the amazing responses to my tweet because it will make you smile in spite of yourself.
Also, I drew you something.
Technically this is just a small part of a much bigger piece that’s in You Are Here but it’s always nice to break the complicated ones up and experiment with different colors so feel free to print and color or use it as a fire-starter as needed. (My drawings always have words in them but this section doesn’t have text. The whole thing was a large collection of things I dreamed of over a week so the text is “This is the part where I write something clever, but my head is broken…so instead I drew you my dreams.”)
Thank you for being there for me. You keep me sane. Or at least close enough.
