When I told Gidget Nana was waiting in the car at pre-school. She smiles huge and says "Nana!, I love Nana!" She simply just loves her Nana, alzheimer's and all. She inspires me. So now, Peggy knits with Gidget and they make a mess with the yarn. I keep trying to get them to ravel it back up and organize the colors, and they just roll it back out and play with it like kittens.
This is a pastel painting I did, called Alzheimer's disease, in 2003 when my mom was first diagnosed. I used to think it was a portrait of her.....maybe it's me.
