Oh my ggggg imaginary friend(s)

Wonderful podcast, i’m catching up from the start now at where Laila is 1, episode about imaginary friends: i would have LLLLOOOOOVED to have had one. What’s more: i need one or more now at 56. As i have been a lonely child and still am. I need an imaginary friend mom, sister, best friend and nana. Starting with drawing and illustrations as total beginner with no artschooling, i’m so glad with the comfort the world of children’s picturebooks and illustrations brings home. I want to become an illustrating nana myself. Right now only a mom with empty nest. Cheers and thanks Ssssoooo much for podcasting and fighting for freedom of (inner) creativity. Hugs, Chanti
