I am an Island (2020)
The Unpublished Picturebook Showcase 2020 selection *
After losing my father, a feeling of isolation took over me. As I listened to some records inherited from him, the song "I am a Rock" from Simon & Garfunkel stuck with me:
"I am a rock
I am an island
And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries"
My father – a quiet man who spoke with his eyes – inspired me to see poetry in solitude.
A perception that encouraged me to understand grief's process as a profound moment of detachment from loneliness.
Following the daily life of an island in the middle of the ocean, I Am An Island offers a touching reflection on the state of being alone without necessarily being lonely.
