My cartoon blog is called, "There is Strangeness in the Universe," and focuses on the strange events that occur daily in our lives and the lives of others around us. Often, we find inspiration in the oddest of places, such as celebrities having to apologize for inappropriate behavior or people doing stupid things. I live in a wonderful place called, Suburbia, sort of like that green patch that urban dwellers can only dream about.
Suburbia is a place where urban dwellers move to commune with nature. Set in the Watchung Mountain range, this particular community presents a beautiful interaction between man and wildlife.
Sometimes this communion with nature becomes more than the urban settlers anticipated as deer eat all your flowers and coyotes and black bears frolic in your backyard. Then there's that old Mother Nature who, with a mean streak that only she can produce, will whip up a little micro-burst to rip up that stately oak tree (you know the one that made you buy your home) and smash it on your brand-new SUV.
But that's O.K., because there are strange lights in the sky over our community. Alien visitors to our community get caught up in the minutiae of suburban life as they try to cope along with the rest of us. Everyone wants the good life in Suburbia.
If you listen carefully, the deer and the squirrels will speak to you. Turkeys will try to convince you that Thanksgiving is just plain wrong. We even have our very own coyote epicurean, who will regale you with his tried and true kitty recipes. Every so often, the trees will let you know how they feel. There is also the occasional fish out of water offering his views on life.
Yes, there is strangeness in the universe and our little acre of green is as far as we need to go to find it.
