several years ago, i heard a scientist liken a rainforst to a romantic relationship. flying over the trees, he explained that the only creatures who truly understand the jungle are those who live inside it.

of course, i flipped this metaphor. whenever i think about other people's relationships (especially the ones that i really don't get), i remind myself that i am a tourist to their jungle and those two people share an abundance of life that i will never comprehend.

this is another comic that i intend to share at the aiga into the woods weekend this april. it takes a gulp of courage to show moments like this one. even if they are short and goofy.
