It took me a long time to figure out that Marion wanted to paint watercolors. Once I figured that out, she and I spent many wonderful afternoons chatting and painting. She returned again and again to the image of the meadow with trees, hills, and a sunset sky. I chose two to include in her book.

Of the seniors that I worked with, Marion was perhaps the most far along in her dementia; but of the memories that she returned to again and again, she recounted them with great fondness. I tried to convey that sense of love and familiarity in the text that I wrote to accompany her images.
