I scrawled the following, after visiting my aunt, who is in a care home. A woman in; it was shocking  the next room was yelling and cursing. I cannot stop thinking about her, It was both pitiful and shocking. It puts my own form of Alzheimer’s, known as PCA, in perspective . PCA  is the atrophy of the back part of the brain, and affects vision: ie space awareness, orientation, perception, literacy, motor  skills, and much more; but it does not affect  cognitive function, ,which is governed  by the front part of the brain. That said, PCA is likely to develop into the more familiar  form at a later date.

Anyhow, here is the tiny piece I wrote.

Time Laps.

The child she was, visiting the child she is.
Do they greet each other as they fly by?
Tea in a cup. Laughter in aspic.
