Working on this page coincided with me finding out my grandmother probably won't make it through the weekend, so please enjoy any extra unconscious Feelings you can find!
I'm joking because I'm sad, surprise. She has always been one of my favorite people, someone who has influenced me in countless ways from personality to vocation, but we live far apart so I probably won't get a chance to say goodbye, and I'm actually not sure she would recognize me if I did. The upside is that she has lived a very long time and had an amazing life, and I got to know and admire her for so much of mine. I'm lucky, in that way.
Anyway, this part of the comic has meant a lot to me for a long time-- ever since I first conceived of it-- and if nothing else I'm glad it came at a time in my life when I needed it.
I'm so sorry, she always seemed like such an amazing person. Not everyone gets to experience that kind of time with their grandparents, I'm happy that you were able to and that you're able to express your emotions through such a beautiful and heartbreaking page. Love you a ton. ️
