Tomorrow morning I’ll be on the road to my printing workshop, and I am already missing my son awfully. I’ll be back on Sunday evening. 4 days away = eternity. This afternoon while I packed my suitcase I realized the accessory pouch I own is too big to travel alone for only 4 days (even […]

This cartoon is printed on the package of the heavy-duty industrial-size roll of kitchen towels I bought yesterday.

today I told my shrink I won’t be seeing her anymore and she got all passive aggressive. We were still talking about my projects and things and she asked questions that demonstrated blatantly that she wasn’t even listening. I’m going to take a course of xylography for four days and I’ll leave Damiano at home. […]
