#323 / Comic Strip Widsom


Mutts is a daily comic strip created by Patrick McDonnell. The comic strip above ran in my local newspaper on October 22, 2021. 

Sometimes, commentary or discussion is not really necessary when one confronts a work of art. That's how I feel about this edition of the Mutts comic strip.

What we discover in the future will be determined by what we do today. We have the feeling that we ought to be able to "see the future," but the truth is that we can only "see" the past. Even in the present, what we see is the result of our past actions. There is, however, the unfilled frame on the right. Today, right now, each one of us has the ability to do something new and unexpected, something that has never been done or attempted before. Hannah Arendt said that. 

Bob Dylan has a song about the phenomenon. Click here for the lyrics. You can listen to him sing it, by clicking below. 

What's going to show up in that right hand frame? I guess it must be up to me!
