As I get older, I can’t help but get wistful about my younger days when I would doodle and draw comic strips featuring my favourite superhero characters. Or better yet, ones I created myself with less-than-original names and superpowers. (“Flame” for a firestarter was not particularly inspired, I have to admit.)
I miss the sense of play.
Then it hit me: What’s to stop me from doodling now? Mapping out the adventures of Flame and Frost (no, really — they’re a duo), the way I used to on scrap paper or old exercise books?
I can play again. I always could.
