I must be crazy

I am always watching over my shoulder for that pesky Alzheimer's Disease that took my mother's brain to tea and never returned with it.  I worry that I will inherit her fate and not remember that I am me, and worse yet, that I can make art. And so each day that I forget a word, a name, why I went down 2 flights of stairs into my studio to get...what? Why I started a sentence...and then...what was my point? I forget.
