‘This book is a reminder that healing is humbling, that resilience is beautiful, that there is joy in choosing yourself’ – Aminatou Sow
‘A timely and modern prompt to allow, even celebrate, the full spectrum of emotion and experience into our lives, the pain, the splendour, and the many, many nuances in between.’ – Zoe Foster Blake
A whole, beautiful life is only made possible by the wide spectrum of feelings that exist between joy and sorrow. In this insightful and warm book, writer and illustrator Mari Andrew explores all the emotions that make up a life, in the process offering insights about trauma and healing, the meaning of home and the challenges of loneliness, finding love in the most unexpected of places – from birds nesting on a sculpture to a ride on the subway – and a resounding case for why sometimes you have to put yourself in the path of magic.
My Inner Sky empowers us to transform everything that’s happened to us into something meaningful, reassurance that even in our darkest times, there’s light and beauty to be found.
