more and more invisible

“i'm the girl who is lost in space, the girl who is disappearing always, forever fading away and receding farther and farther into the background. just like the Cheshire cat, someday i will suddenly leave, but the artificial warmth of my smile, that phony, clownish curve, the kind you see on miserably sad people and villains in Disney movies, will remain behind as an ironic remnant. i am the girl you see in the photograph from some party someplace or some picnic in the park, the one who is in fact soon to be gone. when you look at the picture again, i want to assure you, i will no longer be there. i will be erased from history, like a traitor in the Soviet Union. because with every day that goes by, i feel myself becoming more and more invisible...”

art journal project for three muses


  1. What a dreamy and mystical journal page, very romantic

  2. Very sad thoughts, beautifully illustrated.

  3. Poignant, romantic & beautiful Beth!
    Directly in my heart! Well done!

  4. What a beautiful and haunting way to illustrate that quote. It's perfect.

  5. Oh my goodness, Beth, this is astoundingly beautiful. Absolutely stunning. Bravo.

  6. I feel the same. I am becoming more and more invisible. I am ready to go back to the source.

    1. Yui for me it was healing to acknowledge my sadness- i am hoping it is the same for you in posting your comment. I am thinking about you and know you will feel better with time as I have.
