Words and Images from the Mind of Adam Blatner

Winter’s Day

It’s Texas here, and it’s been nicely warm for a few days, and now we’ve been having a freezing cold front come through and we get those times too in Winter. In another corner of my cluttered mind I found the cartoon below and it reminded me how much I enjoyed Charles Addams’ cartoons in the early 1950s. I too had a dark streak under my mild exterior, a not-too-buried shadow-monster complex, and so I found the open exhibition of it cathartic. It’s one of the functions of art and drama.

So I’m warm and cozy at home and this cartoon above, with Dad saying, “Just the kind of day that makes you feel good to be alive!”
