"By the time I had travelled to New Jersey, it was nearing the hot summer. I didn't hear from my dad, but my mother did send me a telegram, telling me that she was distraught from the loss. . . . . She had nearly committed suicide, thinking this was just a passing phase, but no, I was gone for good-- no ceremony, no parting words, just a family fight. A quick one, too, but one with a long-lasting effect. . . . . . Underneath a dock waiting for the advertisement to back up it's claim, I used money she had allowed me to go on a trip.

'Maybe,' she said, 'The trip alone will do you good. But please come back.'"

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

For once, in a long while, we finally get a page with absolutely no talking. Well, some whispers, and sound effects, but just a somber, quaint, quiet little page on it's own merit.

Vinnie's avoided everything on his travels so far, and now comes at the last end of the road, par se. Like when Forrest Gump finally stopped, turned around to everyone who had seen him, and just went, "I'm pretty tired, I think I'll go along home, now." Though for Vinnie's sake, I think the time away from his journey was enough to clear his head-- though, using my imagination, I'll bet he's probably run into worse army camps to remind him of why he left.

For now he waits, on a self-proclaimed boat trip to see the rest of the United States. Would California be any better? Nevada? Probably not.

I must've been in a Susan B. Anthony mood, lol, because I picked up the PBS special by Ken Burns sometime ago and somehow felt the urge to draw two old women on a train. A rat and I guess what looks like a somewhat furred mole rat. there's nothing more awkward than having two cranky old women, both of whom are probably pretty nastily aged through time, watching and making gossip about you and your worn out clothing, appearance, on the train.
