read this

read this. it's called It's a Bird... and it's the story of a young man dealing with a crisis: he's a writer, his genre is comic books, and he's been asked to write the Superman title. it's overwhelming for him - and in his meditation about why he's so bothered, he discovers some things about himself, and has to face them - including deep family secrets. it's mind-blowing. i absolutely loved it.
my experience is that when we choose our assignment, and it comes to us because we chose it, little ones just give us something to do, but the big ones cause something to happen within us. words by Steven T. Seagle, art (and i do mean art, not cute drawings - this is a book of powerful paintings in many different styles) by teddy kristiansen.
