I posted 5 times on Tuesday. I don’t know why I do this. I think perhaps it is either because I have a lot to say or because I am unhappy. Blogging is the only therapy open to us cartoonists because we do not see a lot of other human beings and cutbacks mean that there is no longer a little bus that drives us all to the day centre.
It is quite possible for me to go from one day to the next without seeing another human being. There are two exceptions, one being Maddie_C who comes during visiting hours, the other being a man from the gas board who comes most days. But I no longer talk to him very much because there is nothing left to say. I let him in and he knows where the boiler and pipes are and he knows what he has to do. He leaves when he has done his thing and then I phone up to tell him it doesn’t work and he comes back the next day and so we continue in this never-ending cycle.
It is a strange world I have created for myself. I would say it is lonely but that is not something that you should admit, least of all on your blog.
Just be on the lookout for people who blog 5 times a day, that is all I am saying.
