Cartoon - Happy Easter & Alien Invasion of Italy

I don't know about you, but when I think about Easter, I think about God, Jesus, rebirth, and an alliance of mighty aliens coming to Earth to straighten the Leaning Tower of Pisa. You know what I mean? Have a Happy Easter! CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Sometimes I

Speaking of sometimes, sometimes I post a cartoon with nothing to write about it, at all. But I just wrote something, didn't I? ARRARAGGGGH!  CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Doomed

True thing: the LA Times online yesterday had a big article about the phenomenon of "hurling" & "tossing" -- studying why we throw our cellphones or electronic devices. Pages and pages of thoughtful insight. Experts weighed in, quotes, quotes. A guy and a gal talked about how far they throw a phone in a coffee shop at each other. I guess a reporter was under a deadline, and they couldn't think of anything important or newsworthy to write about. Next from the LA Times: 'Why Paper Crumples', 'The History of Tying Double-Knots on Shoes and What That Says About Your Personality', and 'Why Some Folks Don't Like the Taste of Low-Salt Spam'.

Cartoon - Take It Up

Moral of this story is, if you see anyone hauling around a big rock, they are not up to any good. Especially if there are any birds around. You could probably cancel their big rock advantage, with a equally big rock of your own. Or I guess you could whip out a huge piece of paper. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Your Forgiveness

Someone told me that asking for forgiveness is okay, and they have no responsibility on a person's reaction to this request. It is enough to ask for forgiveness. If a person is going to be a jerk and not accept an amends, that is their problem, and how pitiful is that? CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Big Struggle

Life used to be a big struggle and I never knew exactly why, until I took it easier and realized that not doing something can be considered and action. Part of 'not doing' is to be aware of the moment, and how I occupy it, without excuses. Now I reside mostly in non-action, and I find I am more real than I was when I was trying to be someone or something. Because to be honest, when I was trying to be someone or something in the past, it was usually for others and not for me. This was because I didn't know who I was, or I was not being totally honest about what I wanted. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Jack Update

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jumps over
the candle-stick.

I don't know what it means, I really don't. Then I go a ruin it by looking it up. First mentioned in 1815, collected by James Orchard Halliwell. It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 13902. Secret meaning: The Ruination of the Universe through the misapplication of Technology. Just kidding. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - In My Head

I sure do like working with the things that I think in my head. Someone today wondered, "Who are we, if we are not our mind and our thoughts?" And I know, fundamentally, we are what we think -- all that we are, arises from our thoughts. But there are a few other very subtle things operating in this equation. It is interesting how certain things emanate, or are inherent in the having of 'mind', or having thought actions. I mean, if you do have a mind, and you do have thoughts, what is behind this? What is mind, or thought, intrinsically? If your mind is real, where does it come from, and where does it go? Can you take a picture of it, or draw it on a map for me? I keep on ending up in the moment, which is the best part of consciousness, for me. And I now focus on awareness, and action, rather than mind and thought. And I like ice-cream. And I think I could be a movie-star, still. CM Evans Cartoons
