Quando quando

My husband showed me a story about a man taking care for his dad with advanced Alzheimer. His dad doesn't recognize him any more and somehow he discovered when they drive together in the car listening to the music, his old dad comes back - he remembers all the lyrics from the songs he used to sing. It is lovely to watch them:

Watching this video brought tears to my eyes. Who will be there for us when we are old? Who will be kind to us?

I know that worrying in advance doesn't help, so  I decided not to think about it (at least not today) any more. It is a beautiful sunny autumn day, it is time for a long walk.

  1. This is really beautiful, Klara. The old guy can really sing! I've read that music is a great thing for Alzheimer's/dementia patients.

    Yes, I've been thinking a lot about our old age recently. I have a post I'm going to write.

  2. My dear late FIL loved to sing -- when dh was growing up, FIL would get up & sing with the band at weddings, much to his sons' embarrassment ;) -- and one of the last times I saw him, lying in bed upstairs at home, he sang a little in Italian to me, SIL & stepSIL. We all got tears in our eyes. It's a wonderful memory I will always cherish.
