I have been a fan of the Calvin & Hobbes comic strips for, well, I think for as long as they have existed.

The way Watterson uses the vivid imagination and simple, yet profound, logic of a six year old boy to impress the hearts and minds of adults amazes me.

There is one strip that has moved me as a parent, and as someone who has lost someone I love... I was reminded of it today...

The Raccoon...get your tissues.

    'why do we always talk about this at night?'

    *it's not night, i'm at work, and i seriously feel like bawling like the big baby that i am.*

    She's not gone on the inside of me either... and she never will be gone...I believe her and I have a connection. Even though I never met her she still lives in everyone of us who had a chance to be a part of her life and a part of yours.

    i love you too Alexis... and i'll be at your house on Sunday night...
