    • Wandering muses are part of the writing “trade.” Mine goes on nice vacations, and spa trips. Sometimes the wandering takes you places that are special.

    • I was very touched by your story. It was a beautiful expression of what goes on inside the mind when the body is merely a shell.
      My family has a history of dementia and Alzheimer’s. I was my mother’s care giver. She had dementia when she died, and her sister died from the affects of Alzheimer’s. So your story especially drew me in.
      Thanks so much for participating.

      • Yes, it’s touched the people in my family as well. It’s tough being a caregiver. Kudos to you for taking that on. Only another caregiver would know how hard it is.
