“Mentally healthy people suffer from anosognosia. Often, they’re largely unaware that every human mind, every human heart

is fallible, prone to error, liable to be self-deluding;
is as fickle as intransigent;
is creaturely, full of fear, need, and malice;
is beautiful, an infinity of inimitably rendered selfhood and moral heroism.

Mentally ill people spend years and decades reflecting on these facts, living them.



I don’t want a big house and a big office and a big car. I just want nice times with loved ones. That’s all there is.” — (11) Mills Baker’s answer to What are some advantages with having a mental illness? - Quora

“I am awfully greedy; I want everything from life. I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish.” — Simone de Beauvoir, letter to Nelson Algren (via memorydesire)

Jaime Hernandez, The Love Bunglers. I feel like this spread is a motherfucker even if you don’t know the scenes it’s referencing, if you didn’t read the stories where they originally appeared. This is what it’s like to live with someone, or even just to live. Give it a stare until it hits you.

These two pages came out last year in an issue of Love and Rockets. They are incidences of Maggie and Ray seeing each other over their lives in chronological order. Like the first panel on the left side is Maggie, and then the first panel on the right side is Ray looking back at that moment.
Each of these moments happened in earlier issues of Love and Rockets, dating back to around 1986.
Reading it, I was stunned to realize how many years I’ve been reading this book. Each of those panels brought me back to where I was when I had originally seen the panel (my dad’s living room during high school, my dorm room at UConn, being one of give roommates in Boston in 1994, moving to NYC, starting improv, etc etc).
How many works of art even have the chance to pull off such a gut punch like this? It is an impossible investment of time —- and yet there are many many people who felt it. THese two pages are two of the coolest pages I have ever —- COULD ever —- see in a comic. 
I think the closest thing to this I’ve even heard of is the ending montage of Six Feet Under where you see the deaths of the characters you had spent hours and years immersed with.
Not to mention how great the drawing is. Peanuts, Dennis the Menace, Archie, Steve Ditko — they are all in there.
I love them all —- I think my favorite is the second row, third panel where Maggie is sitting on the floor and Ray is leaning against boxes. In the original story they have the song “Valentine” by the Replacements playing (“If you were a pill, I’d take a handful at my will”). It’s the moment right before they kiss each other for the first time. That story came out in 1987 and blew me away with how much cooler it was than anything else out.
It is astounding!
