    to pin down your destiny, you must first find your fingers

    Granny the Stoic. She learned some years back that her destiny is not to have a destiny.

    ‘Agnes’ is one of my favourites and I’ll check again later so that I don’t miss what everyone has to say. All you ‘regulars’ in the comment section are like club members… You all seem to know (and mostly like) each other and make reading the comics strips much more fun.
    Thanks, and a Happy New Year to you all.

    Good point Granny but destiny can be pretty slippery by itself.

    I think Agnes must lick her fingers, then she would know the answer to Granny’s wise question and will help set her on the path to enlightenment.

    Mixing metaphors and her guardian throws it back in her face.

    “Christmas is just two days past, and already Agnes is depressed.
    She’s just not of this world!”
    -
    Come now, let us be honest. There is much depression around Christmas. People know they are supposed to be happy but often aren’t. They know they are supposed to be with family but often can’t stand each other. They spent much time and money on gifts the other person didn’t want or appreciate.

    “And so, this is Christmas, and what have we done?
    Another year older, a new one just begun
    And so, happy Christmas, I hope you have fun
    The near and the dear ones, the old and the young
    A merry, merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
    Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fears "

    Hmmm, too late for that.

    Hmmmmm…… gooshy or crisp bacon? I don’t have greasy bacon. Grannie – let Agnes have some tea made with loose tea leaves….. then let her read her destiny.

    Know I’m late – but the computer I’m using is ……old & sloooow. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

    Granny is so funny.


    Myself, I’d be tempted to say…
    “Well, Agnes…. get a grip.”

    As for her “depression”… I don’t think she’s depressed.


    She’s a wild dreamer, but also very self-contained in her little chrysalis of self-protection.


    She already knows that everything goes wrong outside it….
    she’s poor, unpopular, and can’t catch a break…

    but her attitude keeps her safe, and she still expects to emerge as a sparkly butterfly one day.

    To me, her statement is more impatient than depressed.
    She wants her gossamer wings sooner, not later.

    I agree with you, Agnes expects one day to break forth from the chrysalis into a glorious creature and fly away to the heights of creation.

    …and SusanS…

    I actually think Agnes WILL emerge into that sparkly butterfly one day! She’s gonna surprise us all!
