Just wanted to share

My best friend sent me this e-mail. Hope he can forgive me for sharing it.

Now I realized he's kinda biased in his opinion, knowing me as well as he does. But of every living, breathing, human being on the face of the earth, I value his opinion the most. Jeff is the closest thing I have to a brother, in many ways he's probibly would be more a brother to me then if I HAD a brother.

So when I got this e-mail, I got a little misty eyed, and just sat in a warm glow.

I started reading ABH in the days after you told me about it. Not long thereafter it had become part of my daily creeping (maybe slithering) back into conscience routine when just arriving at the office. In the weeks that passed, I’d chuckle while wondering why more people didn’t vote for Mac as a favorite character. Slowly, I found myself craving to know how a strip’s plotline might resolve at the end of the week. Next, I’d have some anxiety that I might have to wait an entire 24 hours to have that resolution another week. Cut to Wednesday and me sputtering incendiary fits of rage at keenspace for not being up and letting me know how Chris is going to come to terms with her past, and I realized that I’m starting to really care about these characters.

When I think about how I personally tend to define Art in my life it has always been this:

Created material that provokes an emotional resonance within the observer.

When I read the feedback on your forum, see the page views climbing, cheer you on with the reviews, and realize my own fondness for the strip, it becomes apparent to me that what you have created resonates with a great many people.

Bravo, old friend.


p.s. Not long ago, up north in Duluth, near the lighthouse, on the end of the pier about 200 yards into Lake Superior, Angie said “yes”.

You hear that?

My friend's getting married.


Bravo my good man, Bravo! Just let me know when it is so I can plan accordingly. We can go look at towel sets sometime. I think you'll want the egyptian cotton ones, preferably in a royal or prussian blue, but your tastes may have changed a bit since the last time we did such.

Another Day, Another Conquest.

I've been meaning to ask you about whatever happened to Jeff... seeing as how it's been just as long since I had talked to him as it had been that I talked to you.

Not that he'll remember me but tell him congratulations! just the same.
