I found this image of a Victorian girl about half a year ago and was enchanted by her.
She just looks so happy to be where she is and doing precisely what she is doing.
It's a fantastic attitude to take through life.
Last week, I discovered that Berke Breathed had begun drawing "Bloom County" once more. I adored Opus and Milo and Cutter John as a child. I felt a tinge of that Victorian girl's joie de vivre.
I adored the way that Berke Breathed and his creations mixed serious politics with the whimsy of a child's bedtime story.
Well I remember the serious temptation of the dandelion as it sways on the breeze, seeds ready to fly.
How could I help but pay homage?
