Yesterday I posted a classic Calvin and Hobbes strip that had something to do with school, childhood, and the passing of time. A recent Frazz strip by Jef Mallett also tried to deal with time and childhood, but this time in a more “contemporary,” existential kind of way.
There’s been a lot about the passing of time in Root’s Congregation in a Secular Age. I’ve got about 80 pages left. It’s the most abstract thing I’ve read in a while, but I think Root has done his homework and is interpreting/communicating something vital about our current moment. But yet, time sure is different when you’re eight years old . . .
