changes…

changes first bob the squirrel

We all go through changes in life.  Life is a cycle…sometimes the chain is well oiled, sometimes it’s rusty.

This is what I looked like in 2002…the year I was re-born.  Just another little sketch in one of Frank’s many sketchbooks.  If events of that day had been even slightly different, I may not have existed…well, I would have still existed… just not with Frank.   All it takes is one thing to set the cards another way.

I like the fact that over the course of 10 years, my arms have gotten longer.  My nose is a little narrower and my tail is a bit fuller.  I don’t feel any different now physically, but I know I think differently.  I see things differently.  If I didn’t have 3000+ strips to look at, I would think that I remained the same and everything else around me changed.  Seriously… you probably would too.

The thing about change is that it can be everything and nothing at the same time.  It can be subtle or severe.  If you’re looking for it, you probably won’t see it.  If you see it, you probably won’t acknowledge it.  When you finally feel it, you probably won’t be too happy about it.  When you’re not happy about it, all yo can do about it is not be happy about it.  Change is a selfish being… and it’s not going anywhere.
