Sadness

For the Mike Mills book giveaway last week, I asked people to share the last sad thing that had happened to them (sadness is a theme in the book). This little exchange really makes me feel like Booooooom is a success. I love the diverse community we have here!

    it does suck. But sometimes, just sometimes, they say “i love you” back. That makes it worth it.

    Thank you all.
    As I wrote to Jeff, Alex’s story really touched me. and I was feeling the same thing at the same time, as I wrote it. it was just weird and nice at the same time to know that someone, somewhere, only 20 years younger, felt the same and had to run away. In a way, I think Alex was really courageous, and I found amazing that he “physically” ran away, when so many people – like me, for instance – just dissapear, or never answer back again. Maybe it was the first time his heart got broken, so I just wanted to say that we never change, we are all the same…

    This exchange is such a beautiful and accurate portrayal of heart break and love sickness, I had to copy it into my sketchbook so that I can remember it forever.
