This webcomic is about that feeling. It is about the elegance and beauty in what might seem monotonous, about the innumerable things that are or will never be, and the quiet dignity in just getting by day after day.
Each comic (or tableaux, if you want to get technical about it) comprises a very short story, often only one sentence long, paired with a picture that complements or challenges it.
Or you can be super-awesome and look at the full text of the story, below the picture. You’ll notice that some of the words may be links. Click one! It will take you to the comic for that word.
In case you're wondering, I include the full text of each comic so blind people or people who cannot read the small text on the comic can enjoy GBWL too. It also means that searching and indexing robots can totally record my site for posterity and ease-of-use.
I never developed a love for photography because I feel it distances people from what is happening around them, almost to say, “What is happening now is not as important as the story I will tell about it later.” If I have suitable pictures which are my own I of course prefer them, but it is impossible for me alone to illustrate the range of stories I tell.
“I want to go on talking to you as freely and intimately about what we live and die for as if I knew you better than anyone else whom you know.”In it he includes an excerpt from the original preface of The Glass Menagerie:
“I have never for one moment doubted that there are people — millions! — to say things to. We come to each other, gradually, but with love. It is the short reach of my arms that hinders, not the length and multiplicity of theirs. With love and with honesty, the embrace is inevitable.”I am tired of normal people not having stories. Here are as many of them as I can recount. We can talk this way, you and I, about what we live and die for and become closer knowing that we are all so similar.
