How can we use writing as a refuge during our journey thru grief? Can we evolve rather than dissolve as we act as caregiver for a loved one?
In this episode, Julia Freifeld delves into her creative process as author and artist, and details the personal journey that led to her book: In Each Other’s Bones: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Living.
In Each Other’s Bones and Julia Freifeld:
Julia and Mark had carefully constructed a life together. Their vision for themselves, their marriage, and their children had always been in sync. Then, life took a terrible turn. Mark was diagnosed with a fatal degenerative neurological disease with no hope for a cure. They would endure ten years of daily discussions about disease, doctors, medicines, and dying.
Drawing upon therapy, painting, sacred rituals, and writing, Julia found the strength to remain at peace and not fall to pieces as she worked to keep her marriage strong and prepare for life on her own.
A classically trained fine artist, Julia Freifeld earned her degree from Boston University in painting and printmaking. After studying in Paris, she worked as a scenic artist for Disney Studios in Los Angeles. She now lives in Raleigh, NC. In Each Other’s Bones is available on Amazon. Learn more at juliafreifeld.com.
