The Dance.
This one is from a few years ago, when my daughter was on stage 3, going to 4.
I am reposting this one because it was kind of an inspiration for the one from yesterday, MOM and since I didn't get a chance to do a new one today, I figured I'd follow up with something in the same
vein.
It's interesting to see this one after a few years.
Time passing and how people change as they age is clearly a theme that interests me...which is not
something I would have said if you had asked me a few years back.
It's odd how we keep learning about ourselves all the time.. it's really as if we are
slightly different people day after day and we need constant check in's to reconnect with who we are, no?

All I can say is,
The last panel looks sad.
Sadly,
Growing up comes with some sad parts.

Oh, I just noticed something! The first part of it he has no glow with him, but in the end, when he's by himself, he has a glow of his own!!! That was a really beautiful part, so you see he has his own happiness, that his daughter gave him! Reallllly touching..

This is really deep... I do like how they both get older! I assume you have a daughter who just got married! If so, congrats!!! I love how she slowly transitions into the wedding dress! At the end, It looks like he is so lonely...🤧

Pikachu crying plz This is so beautiful!! Totally reminds me of Steven Curtis Chapman's "Cinderella" especially that last scene. 

So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I will dance with Cinderella
I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone

Exactly, I thought of that song too.  Always makes me cry because they grow up so fast.

It’s also emotional for a daddy’s girl. Just thinking this is what’s going through a dad’s mind as he watches his little girl grow up.

I think it is always seems bittersweet to me because my father died in a car accident just after I met the man I later married.  I never got to dance that father/daughter dance.

Seeing this reminds me of the Harry Chapin song "Cat's in the cradle"

and I'll admit, I'd love to see you do a sequence inspired by that song. ^^;


Cause this is so lovely and touching.
