I think the hardest part of my teenage years was the silence. As you can see in the drawings, by that point I was not allowing anyone in. I see this protection in a number of my students, and—as an adult—the challenge is to help someone feel safe to opening up.

Lacunae: Elegy For My Mother will be serialized over five parts, weekly, on MUTHA Magazine. Read the first chapters here and follow MUTHA for future installments.
