Troubadour and Buddha. p.2
He tried to survive on imagination alone. Bugs came into the rabbit hole to visit him. Some mistook him for dead and began to chew on his skin. This was insulting and he scratched them off and then gave a good hard thump to make sure they got the message.
To keep his mind from the fact that his siblings where not there to keep him warm he imagined what bugs would be if they were rabbits.
The beetle would be a wicked black rabbit. Yes, of course! The ladybug had to be a red rabbit with white freckles about her whiskers. His amusement changed his attitude towards them, he flirted with them, he saw them as potential rabbit family, until one day a scorpion bit him. He quickly grew very weak.
This story is a metaphor for Dakota’s relationship with his partnership of nearly 10 years with Caila. She’s the Buddha in the equation. And when they met he was in great need of saving. But no spoilers. This series is 5 boards. One process note. This is analog. So I print and paste the text, the old fashion way. One of my rules for this year is that everything is analog vs. using graphic software. I guess it’s just part of working with my hands that I’m enjoying.
