Perhaps I have always known everything important but will need a lifetime to discover what I know. Tarot and Oracles offer me guides and sign posts to help me along my way.

Last night I started reading the book STILL ALICE by Lisa Genova. The story begins with the introduction to a Harvard professor, Alice, and in short order she begins to have episodes of memory impairment. It doesn't take long for the diagnosis and increasing frequency of lost blocks of her memory that the disease of Alzheimer's begins to make a huge impact on her life. I put the book aside to finish later and pondered on everyone's immediate denial, including Alice's. She wants to continue on as long as she can, which she really can't. Wouldn't it better serve her and all her family to spend as much time together? I tried to stop and think about my reaction given the same diagnosis. Couldn't. I wonder sometimes what is it, that I will leave behind?
