Delores Fisher Finally in a Comic Con mood

Like many in San Diego this year, I was a bit apprehensive about Comic Con 2015’s arrival. Our city celebrated a huge July 4th blow out party with one of the biggest fire works celebration in the nation. We were recovering from socializing, remembering, and yes, partying when it became a San Diego  reality that Comic Con was only a few days away and San Diego Fringe Festival is soon after we clean up from Comic Con.

A few signs had already began to appear

Many of us were in a kinda funky mood despite the holiday. National racial and socio-political trauma burden many hearts and minds. We continue to be surrounded by talk of losing sports teams. Another education budget crisis shadow looms over area colleges. Our homeless population is growing faster than alternative housing. Concerned thoughts hover like thick early morning fog; June gloom came in May and is still here!

Even I was in a funk!

Still in a dark mood, I finally wrote about the incident in Charleston http://carpenoctum2.blogspot.com/2015/07/tragedy-in-south-carolina-9-souls-taken.html 

My soul began to feel a little better. Although I cover my grief and anguish, it will remain. It’s going to take a while.

Wednesday evening, pre Comic Con, I shook off a little of the malaise and got a few pictures as the city began creating its Comic Con 2015 production.

Comic Con brings together humanity in its diversity with an overarching goal . . . to celebrate our narrative parables and cautionary tales about the mundane, the good, and the evil embodied, the heroes, sheroes, and villians, the pawns and innocent bystanders imprinted on characters who reflect in many ways our complex humanity: who we are, who we were, and who we could possible become.

Looking at workers assembling emerging installations and the huge production process, I anticipate mingling with tomorrow’s Comic Con goers local and non local, famous and not so famous, and of course . . . the coming of cosplayers.

. . . .Thinking these thoughts, I walk on into the evening’s awakening.
