Sometimes modern life is lonely, but still beautiful. We do whatever we can.
Thanks for reading. Connie on Ko-fi
[4-panel comic about modern life and being alone, drawn in grayscale, except for a window view of a sunset over a cityscape, which is rendered in full color. In panel 1, a cartoon girl with a braid stands at the window and exclaims, "What a pretty sunset! Gosh!" Panel 2 zooms out to show the interior of the room where the girl is looking out. Text reads, "I wish I could tell somebody about this sunset." In panel 3, the girl looks at her phone, as the sun sets further and the caption reads, "Nobody I know will care that I saw this sunset." In panel 4, she walks away, as the light in the sky dims. Final text reads, "I wonder what K-dramas are streaming right now." Original comic illustration by Connie Sun, cartoonconnie, 2022.]
You told us about it, Connie. Thanks for sharing. Sunsets can be so moving.
I know how you feel. Some times I ache for someone to share something with, but no one I know would really care, not even my spouse. It's sadder to try to share something great with someone and have them not "get" it, than just to enjoy it yourself.
I so agree! It can be downright painful to not have someone to share a special moment with, whether it's a scene, a sound, or even a moment of self-discovery. Whoever is reading this, please give yourself a hug from me.
Wow. I feel you!
