I am most fond of the "Mutts" comics. Patrick Mc Donnell's work is absolutely marvelous, and makes me very happy.
The Little Pink Sock is a frequent character. It is the much-loved object of the Mooch, the kitty protagonist.
Puppets continue to pop up all over the place for me: they are singing karaoke, they sit as part of an imaginary audience to alleviate stage fright, or they become shadows projected on the wall by the light of a camp lantern to alleviate a little boy's fear at sleeping alone, for after all, he's used to sharing the room.
Now the Little Pink Sock is in on the act!
It makes me very happy.
So on this day when some Buddhists celebrate the first Turning of the Wheel of Dharma, I wish for you, dear reader, to have time to be with your own Little Pink Sock today, and to be happy and well.
