Over at Elena's there are more pages of our comic, Jane Quiet. She writes, "It's amazing the amount of time it's taking to draw something which in the end, a person can pick up and read in about five minutes." Ain't it the truth? Years sometimes spent writing a book that an excited reader can finish overnight. Nevertheless, we find it worth doing, and I can't wait to see what Elena does with my words -- even if the final product can be consumed in minutes.
Quiet otherwise seems hard to find: the construction, the trains, the loud trucks rattling down the street, the noisy stereos blaring from passing cars all conspire to make me cranky. So much to do -- and increasingly less time in which to do it. Meetings start up the 23rd, classes begin the 27th. Argh -- this always happens when I try to cram so much work into the short months of summer.
