So sad, so beautiful...

It reminds me of a story that Maurice Sendak told about a little baby that he saw on the back of a jogging parent. Baby was being bounced around as parent was running, but when parent stopped at a light the baby's head rolled back and baby saw the blue, blue sky above and a smile grew on its face. Parent, unaware, starts running again, baby's head rolled forward and a little frown grew on baby's brow.

It might be a stretch, but I think there is a certain symmetry there.

Hopefully, the rest of the story involves some pretty foliage and a big box of crayons or something :) Or maybe he takes everything in the room apart and builds a rocketship from the pieces and blasts his way out of there.

Very moving - I think I feel that way often.

Reminds me a little of The Sixth TV:
(comic, 48 pages, complete)

To me it seemed like a modern day portrayal of the beginning of Plato's cave analogy.

You are right though, it would be nice to see when he finally escapes...if he does that is.

Part of me likes being able to carry on the story in my head though too.

I liked this. It feels really easy to relate to doesn't it? Interestingly, it didn't make me think too hard though; what's the correlation there and is it a good one?

it reminds me of kobo abe's woman in the dunes.

Yes! Woman in the Dunes. Also The Truman Show.

Oh dear. I didn't realize how much I missed The Show. Have deliberately not visited here in a long while -- thought it would be too painful -- but am so happy to be here. :-)
