Artist's Statement: One of the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s is the inability to hold information and make applications the brain has difficulty storing, recalling and applying the information. This can be very frustrating to caregivers who don't recognize the demise of theses capacities .A friend developed elaborate visual charts to help his wife understand something, but it was of no value because he didn't realize her limitation. As his Alzheimer’s awareness developed he came to understand why his efforts failed.

Dedication: To Claire...who we didn't realize, couldn't process and to Dick...who stayed steady on the trip.
