NUMB, by Alison J. Torba,  is about a needy bride who after much rejection finds her peace in feeling her feelings, paying undivided loving attention to herself regularly, relying on support from others, and finding a spiritual connection she can feel in her bones through union with her inner children. Transformation is symbolized by the peaceful beauty of the great white egret, a waterbird of devastating beauty and grace. This is a tribute to the adult children recovery movement and shamanic self knowing.
