I know everyone who has experienced a serious illness will relate to this cartoon. It’s apparent something serious has happened over at xkcd, either to creator Randall Munroe, or to someone in his life. Last week, he took time off to attend to a family illness, first running some old cartoons, and then featuring a series of guest cartoonists. I’m a huge fan of Monroe’s work and appreciates the way he shares it with the rest of the world. He has a special way of being smart, funny, and sweet while revealing elemental truths. My thoughts and best wishes go out to him and his family.
