Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.
This meeting and the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative are especially timely for me: my mom is in late stages of Alzheimer's. Despite her disconnect from her memory and friends and family, she's very pleasant. Most amazing is her musical ability: she still plays the piano accurately and soulfully.
John and I just returned from his "hard core" jazz cruise. I loved it. We heard such spectacular music. I fell in love with Jay Leonhart, Shelly Berg, Wycliffe Gordon, and Tommy Igoe. (Seriously, Wycliffe Gordon is a trombone player - who knew I loved the trombone?) There was music from 10 am until midnight - and beyond.
I'll be missing the February guild meeting and want to participate in the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. And this 9" x 12" is what I did today. It needs a name before I can submit it. There's a connection between my mom, her music, the jazz cruise, and the power of sound. Tonight I just can't see it.
