03/11/23 Diary: Boven Peak


Title: Boven Peak Panel 1: Drawing of me at my table drawing on my computer and Cintiq. Caption, "Since I'll be in transition again, it’s been a time of mostly staying at home and working, getting ahead on the comics." -- Panel 2: Drawing of me sitting in the comfy chair suddenly caught with an amazing thought. Caption, "Which of course means that since I don't have time for it: my brain came up with the germ of an idea for a new graphic novel (with a fun 'food' theme), so I've been playing in my head with that." -- Panel 3: Drawing of me either coming out or going into the Caribbean, wearing swimming trunks, a t-shirt, and a snorkel mask. Caption, "Although I've also been doing my usual activities: Weekly solo dates at Cool Corner, daily morning walks, and I even went snorkeling again on March 3rd." -- Panel 4: Drawing of me walking to town carrying my phone and filming my progress with it, the Quill volcano in the background. Caption, "3/4/23 - I filmed my last "morning walk" of this trip. This one was my normal straight not-very-interesting route to downtown, but it’s been a happy walk for me, and I wanted to remember it." -- Panel 5: Drawing of me ordering an ice cream at Juicy Licious. Caption, "That evening on the way home from food shopping at Duggins (out of tuna for Brinnie), I stopped by Juicy Licious for a cookies-and-cream ice cream cone for the walk home." -- Panel 6: Drawing of me smiling as I work on my laptop on the comfy chair, Brinnie rubbing against my leg. Caption, "I've been really enjoying beginning to plan things for when I get back. Some brief travel, and then where I'm going to live. I look forward to friends, family, familiarity, and food." -- Panel 7: Drawing of me carrying the dining room table. Caption, "I take pictures of places when I arrive because I move things, and this way when it's time to go I can put them back in their correct spots. Which I did, signaling the beginning of the end." -- Panel 8: Drawing of me working on my laptop in the library, my arms wrapped around myself from the cold. Caption, "3/8/23 - I've been going to work in the library when the housekeeper comes, just to get out of her hair. They're very nice there, but sometimes the AC can be so cold!" -- Panel 9: Drawing of me on Boven Peak looking out over the island and the Quill Volcano and Saint Kitts in the distance. Caption, "3/9/23 - I finally hiked Boven (this highest point in Boven National Park), and it was so worth it. Every hike here has been worth it. Simply beautiful."
