In the UK the 5th of November is celebrated as Guy Fawkes Night with fireworks. It is to celebrate a Spanish Catholic failing to destroy The House Of Lords in 1605. Guy's effigy is placed on bonfires at the centre of these celebrations. I've always wondered that if we were celebrating a success, wouldn't the day be called Parliament's Day?
Only we British seem to celebrate failure. My home is a strange land.
I've always liked comics, right from an early age. Captioned images is the adult equivalent. I find that creating these captions on images I find interesting, helps me relax. Yes, it's escapism. It seems that only a lucky few live the fantasy. I think we all want to escape to a better place, and we all have our ways of getting there.
