Words and Pictures by Grant Snider
Congratulation, this is amazing. What poem inspired you?
It's so simple and flow is great!
Okay, so I had a weird experience today. I was in class and I was taking notes, when suddenly a small folded note fell out of my writing hand. I had no idea where this note came from. It had appeared in my hand out of nowhere and it fell out. It was a very small note and all it said was "secret" in blue, ballpoint ink.I looked around me, wondering where this note had come from, but no one was paying me any attention. As a temporary theory I assumed someone with the power to freeze time had done so and slipped the note into my hand, unnoticed like that. So I wrote a note back for this time traveler, just as small, with a question: "What is the secret?" I left the note on the desk, but the time traveler didn't come again to collect it and respond.Then I came home and noticed a new Incidental Comic called "The Secret" where my question was answered: The secret is: pay attentionPretty weird huh?
Thanks!I enjoy each of your Comics very much.This one is particularly inspiring.Have a great day!
I love it. Meditate.
An orthodontist who reads poetry -- how wonderfully rare you are! (I wish mine had.) Beautiful comic.
Love the poem and your illustration so much that I can't help translating it into Chinese:我想知道生活的秘密到处寻找它的痕迹：它消融在残雪中它俏立在枝头上它藏在斑斓的影子里它写在天空的雁行里生活的秘密原来如此简单：睁开眼睛，它就在那里
This is so very true—we NEED to be attentive to see what we're seeing. It's all for naught if not.
