I'm Sorry I Forgot You

For my sketchbook I selected the theme I'm Sorry I Forgot You. I've had post-natal depression since the birth of my son, Harper, three and a half years ago. During this time I've often felt that I've lost touch with parts of myself and with those closest to me. I hope that making this sketchbook can help me to reclaim some of the things I've lost and forgotten.

Since I'm practically surgically attached to my iPod, I decided to go with an iPod theme to help myself (and those who view my sketchbook) navigate the labyrinth of my forgotten things. 

The soundtrack for this post is Arcade Fire's Half Light I, because, to me, it conveys so beautifully a sense of loss and yearning and a struggle for reclamation.
