    So, why do I like this one so much? Am I crazy? Are we all crazy? Do we ever talk about the madness? Are we too uptight to make it real, or not make it something it isn’t? The madness or malaise is different for different folks. But, we all seem to have our own strain, if we can make peace with it even enough just to admit its presence inside, sometimes leaking out. Imagine if having the flu was a social plague, instead of making your voice sound funny and your head feel not so funny. What planet do we live on? Sounds like a good topic for a magical mystery tour.

    Very good!!!I worked in nursing homes so am acquainted with dementia. In a nursing home setting, which no one would choose, including the staff, I have come to see that the patients have lost everything they know and so it is natural to have thoughts, pits and scraps, of what they did know but not all neat and tidy, lined up in a row for you to understand. My mom is 100 and way out to sea without any choices, blind, deaf and less able to swallow and yet she keeps on for reasons I don’t understand. Mostly it’s been a ten year process of watching her slowly unraveling. This is not what I hope for my future.
