Calvin and Hobbs was is and always shall be one of my most favorite comic strips of all time. If you don’t know what I am talking about there are several websites you can peruse to see the artistry that Mr. Watterson created. The official site is updated daily with a new comic strip from years past.
The comic is all about a young boy and how he perceives the world…Or how his pet tiger Hobbs does. It’s hard to say… because to Calvin, Hobbs is real not a stuffed toy. The Comic always made me think, or laugh and usually both. At times then i could see myself in it… later on it gave insights into my children.
Calvin gets himself in some trouble from time to time… usually at Hobb’s urgings but it’s how he sees the world. There are worse ways to go through life we all seem to lose sight of the wonder of things eventually. Imagination stagnates when not used regularly, and lord knows we aren’t encouraged to use it in a way that isn’t productive.
Everyone go read some comics today…. relax let your imagination run… I’m going to spend some time with my old friends now… be well.
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
