  1. only slightly related; I’ve been wondering how this makes sense to some people.. the cure for loneliness is to.. get laid. Even when the lack of ‘getting laid’-ness is the cause of the problem.. ‘I see that you are desperately in need for some sex. You should get laid (with-someone-else-than-me)’.

    Good one today ;)

  2. Dude, I really like your work. Congratulations on it.
    I can really relate to many, or most, of the cartoons.
    But honestly, how do you keep it going? I mean, you’ve been in this “phase” for the past three years? I “recently” (it’s been 18 months) got divorced, and it’s been tough, but I finally woke up to the fact that I was only feeding this sadness and loneliness inside of me by reading your cartoons, and reading poetry about love, this and that, you know?
    Aren’t you tired of it? Well I guess you’ve became famous doing this, but I honestly think that you can do “other” stuff with your talent. I really hope you are not as “sad” as you portray yourself in these cartoons.
    Anyway, I was just wondering how you have been able to keep this going for such a long time.

    Good luck, and take care.

  3. Pedro: you’ve hit the nail on the head there. Yes, sometimes I’m really, really tired of it… But don’t worry: it’s not *all* true ;-)

  4. That’s comforting to know, hehe. I’m pretty sure you went through a really hard time, as I am, ’cause the things you talk about are exactly what I feel sometimes.
    And yes, I understand the “labor of love” thing. But I feel like if I keep working FOR it, I will never be able to let go of the LOVE I felt for that one person. And I long for love, to love, and be loved again. So I dropped the whole “labor of love” thing. As I said before, you are only feeding it, and making it bigger than life, and although (trust me) I understand it, I really don’t want to live my life like this. Poets find beauty in this, a love so great that nothing matters, but I find it to be also really sad.
    I just want to love and be loved again, that’s all.
    Take care…
