i don’t always “get” the trippy and playful cartoon site exploding dog. but once in a while, i find such deep resonance with it. like this one. i’ve felt this way on a plane headed to san diego so many times. and, while i doubt the artist intended it, there’s a great, spiritual, hope-filled, future-longing in it…
one of the most wonderfully strange blogs i have in my reader is the odd — and regularly… heartwarming? — exploding dog. it’s just the occasional single panel “comic”, often created by emailed title suggestions of followers to the artist, sam brown.
but this one really caught my eye. man, i have felt this way so many times in the past year, and it resonated with a conversation i had with a youth pastor an hour before i saw it.
(btw: today is my 47th birthday. i like birthdays in general. i was very happy to turn 30; and 40 was fine. but 47 is shockingly close to 50, and that just feels a little weird to me.)
