The Incredible Time Machine

Dear Nancy,

“There is no fence nor hedge around time that is gone. You can go back and have what you like of it, if you can remember.” – How Green Was My Valley



(P.S. That’s me and my Dad on a hike recently.)

Dear Hayley,

I was watching a movie last night about time travel and parallel universes, and wondered if we might be able to convince ourselves that Alzheimer’s is a time machine. Our fathers minds have gone someplace else, and that’s all there is to it. Their memories are still here, though, but in the form of us. This idea, to me, takes the “bad” out of Alzheimer’s and makes it metaphysical. Thanks for sending me the quote. Clearly you and I are on the same wavelength this morning.
