cartoon: on suffering

Silly generalizations, I know. However, that's what cartoons, satire, comics, comedy and humor are made of. I know these are generalizations because, although I find myself in the Christian tradition, I have shared all of these ideas of suffering. Our preconceived ideas of suffering are often ways of coping with it. Our minds crave that our experience makes sense. It demands that it has meaning, some purpose. It reminds me of the story of Job who insisted, much to his friends' outrage, that his suffering had absolutely no meaning at all. And in the end we discover he was right. He never did discover the "why". Talk with me. Buy this cartoon/ art/ tees Please join my newsletter.
