The Cup Drawings
The Cup Drawings

scott's dad charlie was just diagnosed with dementia and i feel like our blog should take a break because it's overwhelming. i wrote a post about it, but can't press 'publish post' because the thought of not having this space makes me even more sad. so for now, even though i might only be around sporadically, it's all just up in the air and i'll see you when i see you.

xo, cindy

ps we walked past this wonderful installation hypergraphia: the cup drawings studio in the prow by gwyneth leech quite a few times without paying too much attention before aimee mentioned it on her blog. so glad she did because it is very cool.

Oh Cindy I am deeply sorry. My dad had parkinson/alzheimer when he was alive. Dementia is not only very hard on the family, but the person with it. I hope the family will be able to come together to help you and Scott. This can be a very stressful time, so remember to take time for you and Scott. I'm here for you my friend. An email, tweet, text or call away. BIG hugs xo...

Cindy said...

thanks you guys ... that's why i don't want to take a break at all!

and joyce, i am sorry for your dad. it is really tough on the person because they know they're slipping and can't understand why. xo, c

Oh Cindy... I'm so, so sorry :( I'm so grateful I saw this post... I've been so absent lately.

Post when you can - it can be a bright spot in your life, or a way to vent, or anything you want it to be - and please keep us updated on sweet Charlie.

We love you dear friend - xoxoxo

This is so sad - for you and Scott, but also for Charlie. Hang in there, all of you, and enjoy the good moments together. Take care,

PS: Don't worry about the blog - just post when you feel like it, but don't stop doing what you love and keep taking pictures.
