After He's Gone

I will dwell
where I am
and use
what is
in me
to remember.

I think the above, Nov. 09, '05 diary-entry, will be my last for awhile on Alzheimer's, at least to publish here. The disease is taking its toll, and I must move my writing and thinking forward into other spaces, all the while I continue caring for my husband (at home) and interacting with this nightmarish disease.

Your question, "where will I dwell" moved me. Having lost both my father and brother I too wondered "where will I dwell?" Just as you wrote I am using what I have to remember them. I guess that is our gift...the memory of them and we are the keeper of that memory.
