Dear Dr. Ani,
I saw your post about your mom just now, and I felt so deeply for you. One class with you Dr Ani at Columbia has forever changed me and stayed with me. It has helped me think differently, more deeply, to be present and to seek and give meaning. I could not possibly advise you, but I know how powerful your love and kindness are. Powerful enough to create peace. Dementia is a wild and meaningless thing that destroys our hearts and minds, but nevertheless love still finds moments to prevail and soothe the soul. Yours and hers. You are a force of love. I am thinking of you and your mom.
