This is what dementia looks like to me. In its mystery is beauty and grace that we cannot keep up with it despite all of our efforts. We can, though, watch it with grace and respect its progression. I think this way we can protect ourselves from its teeth. Otherwise, we will be devoured by its nature. In its speed we see decompensation (@ejourneys). In its grace we see love (@ildestino1). In its blur we see outworking (@rainbow). In its beauty we see comfort (@denise).
Perhaps by stepping back we may find comfort in what we cannot control and come to peace in stillness, hiding, and it's paradox.
