When Teva Harrison was first diagnosed with cancer, she felt lost, cast adrift.
In order to pull herself out of depression, to draw herself forward, she started to draw.
In the beginning, the drawings were tiny wildflowers photographed on her travels.
Something about that act of looking, drawing the edges until flowers emerged, focusing on something so short-lived, resilient, and beautiful changed the nature of her days.
It let the joy back in. This coloring book is an expansion on that germ of hope.
Having cancer has made the world feel especially precious to Harrison, and she finds magic and delight everywhere: symbol-enriched heraldry, animals and birds, everyday objects that give her pleasure, foliage and flowers, and a few choice words of inspiration and hope.
