Chicago cartoonist Sarah Moon tackles life's real issues
with a healthy dose of sharp wit in her syndicated comic
strip Just Breathe. As Sarah's cartoon alter ego, Shirl,
undergoes artificial insemination, her situation begins to
mirror Sarah's own difficult attempts to conceive. However,
Sarah's dreams of the future did not include her husband's
infidelity: snag number two in Sarah's so-called perfect
With Chicagoâ€”and her marriageâ€”in the rearview mirror, she
flees to the small Northern California coastal town where
she grew up, a place she couldn't wait to leave. Now she
finds herself revisiting the pastâ€”an emotionally distant
father and the unanswered questions left by her mother's
death. As she comes to terms with her lost marriage, Sarah
encounters a man she never expected to meet again: Will
Bonner, the high school heartthrob she'd skewered
mercilessly in her old comics. Now a local firefighter,
he's been through some changes himself. But just as her
heart is about to reawaken, Sarah discovers she is
pregnant. With her ex's twins.
It's hardly the most traditional of new beginnings, but who
says life and love are predictableâ€¦ or perfect? The winds
of change have led Sarah here. Now all she can do is just
close her eyesâ€¦ and breathe.
