A space for readers to share thoughts inspired by Mysticeti's writing prompt


Write thoughts inspired by this artwork from Still Life, a graphic novel by Anoushka Khan ~

Still life is an experiment with visual storytelling, using pictures and words to create a world that is unsettling and extraordinary. Part road trip, part existential thriller, it seeks new ways to look at love, isolation, memory and loss, asking what connects us to each other and to the natural world, and how we are governed by impulses we barely understand.
