DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT


I was scared of dying when my daughters were very young. Never before and never after.

Old age, however, does frighten me a great deal.

I fear losing my head. I fear becoming a burden, bieng sick, being poor, but mostly, I fear losing my dignity and my right to decide...

This is one of the most moving and elegant websites I've come across. Please take a look at these wonderful photographs and read the text:

It´s really moving and scaring, too. I should try to accept facts and be positive but that alzheimer illness scares me to death. To lose ones memories and not being able to remember, even your previous thoughts, or who you are, is too painful for the whole family. Francisca

Gracias Francisca...
Genettica, es una pena que no vivamos más cerca - si entiendes el inglés hablado, aprenderías el idioma en un pis pas. Gracias por intentarlo, de todas formas.

Conmovedor, además de una original forma de rendir homenaje a un ser querido.
Saludos.

'Rage, rage against the dying of the light.'
What a beautiful website! And, as you say, so elegant.
But I think I'd rather go gentle or like an old aunt of mine who spent her last days thinking she was on a cruise across the Atlantic and told us how the ambassador of Poland had made a pass at her and 'Oh he's so good-looking!'

Ja Ja! I like the idea of the Polish ambassador... If only we got to choose in what pastures our brain will roam when it loses control...
