I am thinking of writing a memoir about my dad. Maybe mixing the Alzheimer's experience with anecdotes from him life, maybe just stories of his life. I feel like there is so much I don't want to forget about Dad. So many amazing things. I don't know, though, if I want a blog, an attempt at a publishable book, or a private journal. Blog was my first thought, but who would read that? And I am not sure I want to have to constnatly shape something so personal into something other people would want to read.

I wsh my dad hadn't gotten sick so fast. I could have done this when he could still read it. He was trying to read a children's book to Monkeyboy the other day, and it was clear that it was a major struggle.

Start writing and see what it turns into would be my less-than-helpful advice.

And also *hugs*. I have some idea of what it's like although, obviously, every experience is different.

I feel like a dope for not thinking of it, but that's exactly how I should start. Thanks!
