Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #1714 - Season's Beginning

Nobody wants to be the loser who never loses because he/she never actually played a game. Get off your butt and try, why don't you.

My dad's email about baseball starting yesterday had the subject line 'Life Begins'. Felt entirely appropriate. Thank God the sports metaphor for life is back again.

Side note: I recently got a copy of Jessica Hagy's new book "How To Be Interesting" and it is easily one of the best inspirational books I've ever read. Utterly beautiful in its simplicity and its art as well. It should probably be the book that everyone graduating this year receives, but it's great for everyone else, too. I wouldn't BS you about this, it's really that good. You can see some samples here.
