Miriam Feldman is a painter, writer, and mother originally from Los Angeles, California. After her son, Nick's, diagnosis with Schizophrenia more than ten years ago, she began writing to document and explore the ways this new reality affected her relationship with her children, her husband, and herself. This blog marks the culmination of that work, as well as a completed memoir, and begins a more public platform to interact with others.
