I created this particular Blogsma in reaction to an Oprah show which I watched the day after finishing a graphic memoir (and who inspired me to do this one) written by a woman who died of breast cancer which had metastacized in her brain. I was mad at Oprah’s glib solutions to the complex problems of life, which although they have value and I really do like Oprah’s spirit, trivialize the hell that so many people go through.
One of my readers felt that anyone suffering from cancer would take offense at this blog, but I hope that won’t happen. I did it in their defense, and in mine. I welcome your comments and suggestions in this new venture.
I’m considering putting Blogsma on a separate website or perhaps youtube.com or flickr.com. What do you think?
