Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

"Still Alice"

This novel by Lisa Genova is a must read for anyone who has known someone with Alzheimer's disease. The story is told from the perspective of the woman who has the disease and though the author has taken some liberties with how fast the disease progresses you get the full impact of the tragedy of such a diagnosis.

I had a friend develop Alzheimer's. Very sad. What was beautiful was that her husband was so loving toward her. Really spoke volumes about their relationship.
