Catastrophizing 101

INSTA 58 3 afterlifeINSTA afterlife 2INSTA afterlife 3INSTA afterlife 4

There is just so much to worry about these days, that these existential ones must be put to the wayside. However, I still love to harken back and revisit my old worrying grounds. The good old days, with those amorphous, intangible worries; not the current ones that sidle up to you and whisper ‘hello sailor’.


I am a Sansei, with two teens, and a hamster. This blog is a repository for ideas and observations, expressed in cartoon form, by and large. A bit of a journal too. Feel free to follow me on INSTAGRAM @ WILTOONS, (the Twitter for people who like to go out) where I post a journal comic. Thanks for dropping by! The pic is of me and my boy Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits. (not really a fan but he wanted his pic with me) © Wilton Sugiyama and Wiltoons, 2009 to 2020.

  1. This was brilliant start to finish … both the words and the drawings!

    And you’re quite right. I find myself worrying about the strangest and dumbest things, all of which are beyond my power to control or prepare for in any way. I has made me seriously ponder taking up drinking as a hobby.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment and observations. There is no end of things to worry about. The trick, I think, is to distract your brain with shiny and glittery things.

    1. Candice, remember that I am but a vessel put here to remind you of these catastrophes to come. We can still remain friends.

  2. Yes, Anne. I have come to realize that certain things, depending on your age, and how impressionable you are, are better left unsaid. I read a lot of non-fiction ‘fact-y’ books when I was but a sprout, whilst my classmates read Judy Blume and Tom Swift stories (both of which I devoured later too). Without an adult to put things into perspective, well, you draw your own conclusions!
