Welcome to The Slow Forget.
I began this blog to post poems about my mom’s Alzheimer’s journey. My original tag was “Remembering for them through poetry.”
But, I found myself writing about the current issues of dementia and poetry. I’m not sure it was working.
So, I changed it.
I am a poet. And a writer. And an editor.
My mom doesn’t even know I write. Mr. Alzheimer’s has taken control of her brain. I’m a long-distance care-giver.
This blog is about my mom. Your mom. Your dad. Your cousin, grandma, aunt, neighbor, client, etc.
You might be an at-home care-giver. You may be further along this journey than I am. Or just beginning.
But, we all have something to say about this disease of “Slow Forget.”
I want to inform you of new findings, issues, and current news stories. I want to hear your stories, your sorrows, and your celebrations of Alzheimer’s. The good, the bad, the ugly.
If things go well, I’ll start a Facebook group for Alzheimer’s/dementia.
Let’s create a time capsule for AD. For our loved ones. So we can remember for them.
God bless you.
P.S. If you’re interested in poetry, head over to my other poetry blog: Writing On the Sun where I post challenges found in cyber-world, forms, Vintage poetry, biographies, and anything else I find interesting. Including personal poems.
