When Ani Castillo, Mexican cartoonist immigrated to Canada, she faced a very difficult time adapting to the fact that she had to start her life from scratch, learn to speak a new language and be away from her family.

She then sought some help and a brilliant psychologist in training took her under her wing. Together they found ways for Ani to cope with the challenges. One of them was this cartoon, Imaginary Friend. The name refers to the years when Ani wouldn't dare to speak for fear of embarrassing herself in the new language, but her mind would be flooded with an incessant chatter.

Like pinning a butterfly, Imaginary Friend helps Ani to "pin a thought" and understand it better. After almost a decade of leaving her homeland, she's beginning to feel like she can actually thrive in her new country.

The fear of that pain is way way more painful than the rejection itself :D

This makes me think how much I love my Grandmother even after she's been gone all these years. This is the enveloping safe warm love she would always give me. Thank you.

Nobody ever says things like this, so I've finally found someone who feels the same way!
