in heaven...

so today took a half day, and took the bus/train/subway into the city to check out the NY Comic Con. surprisingly enough, this was my FIRST comic book convention.

the main reason i went was to meet the creator of my (current) favorite comic book, get the newest volume, and maybe even meet the author. mission accomplished. he even did a sketch for me (above).

here are some other random pics from the show (tho the best is yet to come):

i stocked up on quite a few graphic novels (half-off!)...pretty much until i couldn't carry any more...

i'll head back tomorrow for some prime people watching. stay tuned for more pictures...

old souls?

there's a lot to be said about having an "old soul." despite my STILL reading comics + collecting (not playing) with action figures, many would say i was already 30* when i was 16. more politely put, some would call me an "old lady" (but that's besides the point).

however you describe it, it's having an older mentality (maturity?) when you're younger. and the more we age, one could argue the more advanced our outward/inward view has the capacity to become. so a 60/70 year old, who has seen + thought more of life & the world has a broader, perhaps wiser view than the 20/30 year old (ther are always exceptions)

but given we all have finite lives, one can only go so far. so if you progress faster down this mental spectrum, do you get further along? do those who are old souls reach some higher level of enlightenment at the end of their days (VS those who progress at a "normal" pace)?

...this random thought was brought to you in part by the drive in to work today (tho i wonder if i would have thought differently if i had still biked/bussed in). and, the letter "Q"

*still not 30 (yet)
