In 2010, David Hayward underwent a traumatic transition in his life. He began drawing images of a young woman in all kinds of situations. He recognized early on that these drawings weren't just random pictures, but were the articulation of his interior life's journey through spiritual, emotional, intellectual and social transition. He realized that Sophia was him! This is the story of Sophia who starts by finding herself feeling trapped in so many ways. But she won't stay there. This is also the story of her journey into her own independence and freedom. There are 59 drawings, with 59 meditations, that chronicle her journey. Journey with her as she comes face to face with many dangers, but especially with herself. Join with many others who have fallen in love with Sophia and also recognize her story as theirs.
