After her daughter, Alexand was released from a Floating Asylum, Inajda spent six months helping Alexand’s husband, Jarad to care for Alexand. Alexand returned in a catatonic and emaciated state, but eventually woke up. A month after Alex woke, Inajda is trying to help her daughter come to terms with what has happened to her. Unfortunately Inajda wasn’t there for most of Alexand’s childhood, but is trying her best to make up for the missing years. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

oh, this was so touching…i could relate to long ago when I too was ill and my mother came to care for me…many times.
Mothers are special and the love that you portray here is evident. 🙂
I’m glad it translates and that you relate. That means a lot. 😀
Love your stories..thank you for sharing them.
Amazing! I’d like to read more of your stories–more of this one in particular. I’m new to your blog though and looking at all the different posts is quite confusing. Maybe you can help enlighten me as to the order to your posts or the connection behind them? For the meantime, I guess I’ll have to explore.
Hi, and thank you for stopping by and reading. That’s a very good question! In relation to this storyline it’s best to start with The Floating Asylum series, which you can find in The Story timeline section. It explains how Alexand got into this state. http://www.atendesign.co.uk/storiesconnecting.html (There are two more stories in this series to follow, next Wednesday and the Wednesday after! Taken from Alexand’s perspective and then her husband’s) *Happy dancing!* 😀
Thank you for following my poetry site. What a wonderful discovery in finding yours. I went to the School of Art and Design in New York City as a young man so I am aware of the many hours required to do such illustrations. They are beautifully done. Blessings in your journey. I shall return often to your work.
Thank you, John, I’m glad you like the art. I’m enjoying reading your poetry site and also looking at the artwork. Good to meet you. Cheryl
Thank you for following my Art blog, I absolutely love the idea behind your blog, and am looking forward to reading more!
Hi Irene, thank you for visiting. I’m enjoying your art and photography too! 😀 Cheryl
Thank you so much for following First Night Design. It is a pleasure to return the favour. Your stories are very moving and I’m looking forward to reading more. And your illustrations of the characters are full of … well, character!
Hi Sarah, and thank you for reading, I really appreciate you taking time! Good luck with the exhibition btw! Good to meet you.
You have some wonderful and amazing images of women! Thank you for dropping by and liking.
Thanks for liking my blog – you are a very prolific writer and illustrator. It looks like you have quite a following!
Likewise, Cindy, thank you, there are some really beautiful photographs on your blog. I love the sunrises and sunsets.
How beautifully you draw and the stories are captivating. Does not matter if they are just snatches of a story. I am in awe.
Hi, Jofelyn, that means a lot. Thank you. I’m looking forward to reading more of your stories too.
What power is here Cheryl! The drawings are astounding, the words profoundly moving…
Great stuff, really enjoy taking time out in your stories.
‘She nods as if my words are too many’. I love that line.
And the picture of Ma’am Alamandez always catches my attention, every time, it is my favourite so far.
Thanks, Hassan, I’m glad this works. I was initially reluctant to touch on the post floating asylum storyline, but I’m pleased I shared this with you. 😀
A very enjoyable story to read. I like the feel of old. I like stories from other places. We can always learn from each other. Thank you for the excellent story.
“I’ll be clawing my way back onto that asylum ship if she comes anywhere near me.”
LOL! That is funny! 😀
LOL, I love Heyem, but she’s really mean to Alex! (This meeting between the twins actually happens in the next issue) I’m really looking forward to releasing this story lol. You’ll see why Alex is so reticent to see her sister 😀 *evil grin*
I can empathise with this – it’s very hard when you see someone you love suffering and can’t find a way to really help … all you can do sometimes is let them know you love them, and be available. Real well-written piece! =D
Hi, and thank you, I’m glad this works. It was a story I’ve wanted to tell for a few years now.
These drawings that you have done are absolutely wonderful! The story immediately comes alive through their faces. Excellent addition to your words.
Where did you learn to do such detailed illustrations!
Hi Mary, (I love your poetry BTW) Thank you. I went to art school, but the illustrations didn’t develop until much later. I’m still trying to get better! Glad you like them and good to meet you.
