Cartoon: ‘Walking’

At first glance, this cartoon (should we call it an “illustrative essay?”) by Grant Snider, philosopher-cartoonist extraordinaire, may not seem to be about writing.

But like so many of the subtle observations Grant makes, the last panel here brings us a treasure – the secret of creativity of all kinds, just waiting for us to put it to use.
