Artist's Statement: At the onset of my friend's Alzheimer's affliction, we had dinner together as couples. She had great problems with making a selection from the menu. All the choices were overwhelming. When I tried to help her make a decision, she insisted that she liked everything on the menu. I could sense her agitation building as she realized she didn't have the capacity to make a decision. That evening, I learned about another ability that is so easily taken by the disease.

Dedication: to Claire who tried so valiantly to ward off the disease..
