Let’s go exploring
This is what little Calvin’s tells his friend Hobbes (and us) in the famous last strip of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes.
In my world this strip can often be found attached to a mail written by someone who informs colleagues about a new professional challenge she has accepted (I might have even done this myself once).
But ever since I’ve read Nevin Martell’s awesome Looking for Calvin and Hobbes it feels to me as if maybe Watterson didn’t mean to put the focus so much on the leaving – but on the exploration.
If that is the case, then this quote is indeed the perfect fit for a blog that is intended to document some of my explorations and to explore ways that allow me to translate into the present time what I’ve done with my previous blog several years ago.
