My mother and I are learning hope amid Alzheimer’s.  She hasn’t been always great at it and neither have I.  But we are learning.  This section of my website will be dedicated to those who are striving to live with hope and joy, despite the ravages of that which ails them.  Lament and joy are not opposites. We are figuring that out.

Both my mother and I will write here. Her story is hers. And mine is mine. And my story of Alzheimer’s is different than my sister’s story or my brother’s. Yes, each of us are on the same road, but we each experience the road in different ways. And thus, I want to make sure I honor the variety. Do come back often. My mother and I have been writing about all this for over two years and will be begin to publish more of what has been written.  Scroll down in this section of my website to read.
