Writing and illustrating a soulful parable for adult seekers and CCT survivors called “Adios, Queen OnlyMe” is keeping me busy. Here is the first illustration, a portrait of the self-absorbed Queen OnlyMe.
Thinking about the twists of plot and imagery and bringing them “to life” have helped me get clear and inspired. Fiddling with some of my juiciest attachment trauma themes: narcissistic injury, trauma bonds, naïve idealism, empathic failures, feeling invisible and insignificant. And, thankfully, I’m also getting to create images of healing from these compelling relationships of inevitable harm.
The like-minded soul seekers I’ve shown the illustrations and story to could relate and have found them inspiring.
So, I’m committing to finishing “Adios, Queen OnlyMe” and bringing it out into the world. Maybe this community will be its portal…
My hunch is that Queen OnlyMe gets around. Have you met her?
