My Vida Location

For the last three months, I've been trying to get my comic series finished and up online. More people are showing up and checking out and (I hope), liking what they see. I haven't been able to touch the work.

My roll as business owner has me working crazy hours and trying to figure out how to as they say in my country, "make a dollar out of 15 cents". The constant pressure to create a tangible income out of thin air is a bit stressful but oddly liberating.

When I was working for the "Man" at the Yellow Pages sales office, I felt totally at the mercy of my environment. I could not do what I needed to do to get ahead. Now that I'm the lifeboat and the ship, I wake up with the sense that each day has to mean something in order to enjoy next month.

I'll be back at work on the comics. I promise. My kids just think they're entitled to food and shelter, so I have to make sure that they have it. It's great to be back at my home office full time. This is the place I call my "Vida Location".
