I spent the usual time hanging out at Starbucks just now. Not as if I had a choice in the matter, every darn place in the chockfull of noisy crowds and those small pockets of quiet places charge steep prices for their beverages. I'm usually armed with a book, a sketchpad, and my trusty black pen ready to draw anytime inspiration strikes. It was good this time as I've been training myself to think of ideas for the strips. The place I'm hanging out in thankfully is well hidden the only people who go there are after the same things as me. They don't mind the other patrons and if at all, avoid looking at each other's direction. Not me. I watch every person moving in my line of sight, not enough to stare but enough to soak in information about what they look like, and sometimes, what is it about them that I could probably use for my strips.

It's been a quiet week and God has been very good to me. I wish I could say the same about me to Him. It's been quiet on that front. I'll discuss more about that in the future. I'm not much after company these days. I prefer spending time alone giving me time to think about a lot of things. Or just ponder on what's going in my life. I've long accepted that I'm not getting any younger but I'm not in a hurry to do things. I smile to myself as I think that I'm probably there between the state of apathy and contentment. Do I feel alone. Sometimes, but more often than not I feel perfectly content with what I have right now. Then again, I shouldn't rest on contentment alone but rather find a way to move towards another goal. What it is and where it lies is beyond me right now, I'd rather relax and leave it all in God's hands.
