PLEASE NOTE: Even though this blog is now dormant there are many useful, insightful posts. Scroll back from the end or forward from the beginning. Also, check out my writer's blog. Periodically I will add posts here if they provide additional information about living well with Dementia / Alzheimer's Disease.

A Trip to The Barber
And with finger stiffly aimed,
He pointed at my beard.
"Yes," I replied as if I
Knew what he would say,
"I had my beard trimmed."
"I also got my hair cut.
See how short it is!"
I leaned in towards him.
He lifted his arm slowly
And navigating thoughtfully,
He ruffled the hair on my head.
This unexpected interaction
Between us spontaneously,
Rekindled the human connection.
I loved the feel of his tender touch.
He loved the feel of touching me.
Another Monumental Momentary Miracle!
