Does your garden not grow as beautifully as your parents’ did? Do you feel like you’ll never amount to the romanticized memories you have of your grandparents? Is something lost in our modern world you wish we could get back to?
Heart Seed is a short and loving minicomic by Leslie Perrine about building a family history. It can be quite easy to look at previous generations, and see them through a veil of traditions and rituals, and think that today’s younger generations lack such a rich history. We often yearn for the “good old days,” for whatever connection we feel we lack in our current time. Leslie’s all-ages comic both celebrates tradition, but encourages us to celebrate these good days too.
Memories and traditions are built by actions in the present, so quit lamenting! Start enjoying your time and those with whom you share it!
