Thank you, Barbara! I love and admire how you refocused on making the best of dementia — it sounds like a blessing to the families still dealing with it. My mother, alas, has lost almost all her verbal skills; she no longer can communicate even simple things without effort, and as she tries the frustrations build. Music is good, but my father prefers to have talk radio on. Good luck with your art workshop, and bless you for giving your time and gifts to it.
