DISAPPEAR BEFORE YOUR EYES
“As my mother’s disease progressed, I needed to accept changes in our mother-daughter relationship and to understand the emotional and all too harsh transition she was experiencing.
"Mom closed her eyes … so as not to hear and covered her ears … so as not to see, and we pretended not to notice. She ‘knew’ her memory was slipping and feared what that might indicate.”
And it took many years before I felt comfortable enough to share it.
The poetry evolved slowly. It was many months before I began to record the difficult journey Charlotte Menter, my mother and the subject of this book, took at the end of her life.
