Many thanks to Ricky McAlister for recommending “Hemlock,” which is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read. It’s a webcomic about an 800 year old witch in a pretty dysfunctional marriage. It has a tenderness and dare I say grace of its own; the end of the first chapter was moving. You should read about the author and note how old she probably is. Tonight I’ll talk with Mom and we’ll probably reach the conclusion that nothing will ever change in our crazy world. Part of me thinks we really need to take a chance and let some younger people start leading, right here, right now (and I don’t mean me. I’m too old). It’s really amazing what they can see, especially in light of our blinding ourselves with excuses.
