Alzheimer's and Art

I saw this touching story on Writing Without Paper and wanted to share it with you:

* Art Boosts Alzheimer Patients at LiveScience
* The Pablo Picasso Alzheimer's Therapy at The New York Times
* Advice about music, art, and pet visit activities from the Alzheimer's Association

Very touching...and I believe, too, that art has a very deep place in our minds.

The interpretation of the saw may or may not have been what the father felt and wanted to portray, but the son's thoughts in the poem were as creative in their own way and as deep as his father's art.
