In the fog of postpartum depression, Chicago-based musician Angela James began humming melodies while trying to get her infant daughter to sleep. These melodies guided Angela back to her creative practice as a songwriter after a difficult and exhausting period as a new parent. She speaks to Nyssa about how she was finally able to create meaning beautiful out of those dark times and how she continues to maintain her creative practice with a toddler.
