Academia raises us to believe that real books do not have pictures.  I have spent 4 decades in an almost Augustinian austerity, avoiding and abstaining from any look towards graphic novels and comics.   I have never been able to read a comic without feeling ashamed that I am not being productive, that I am doing something less than reading.  I still feel that way.  However, nothing is fixed.  Time transforms everyone and everything.  That which seemed worthless now has great value.  Maybe my old definition of productive needs to change.  I see an opportunity to do more than just speculate on items of value.  The more stories I learn, the greater value I have.  The better I can communicate.  The purpose of keeping this journal is not to expose my ego to the internet such that I can live and die with comments; I hope that it will help me to remain accountable in the process.
