Grief Recovery (Comic #712)

Full comic transcript below

I drew this comic about a specific experience of loss as part of a Drawing Together session run by Earla Legault. It’s been interesting to see how this comic applies to so many experiences of grief recovery/processing. Some losses take longer to recover from, some losses will always be part of you, the missing part will always be there, but so will the Navigating, Continuing and Resourcing.

Thanks to all my patrons and a special big extra thanks to Kate Webb, Erik Owomoyela, Sandra M. Odell and Stuart Barrow.
