I Weep, Art Quilt, 9" x 12"
"I Weep" was inspired by comments left on the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative's "Share Your Comments About Alzheimer's" page.
A sentence in the first paragraph of the page says: "Your words give courage, strength, and purpose to all who read them." Those comments do offer courage, strength and purpose to the reader. For me, it also offers understanding and a continuous flow of inspiration for the making of my priority quilts.
In particular, the following comment provided the inspiration for "I Weep":
"When my mother-in-law was admitted to a rest home and we were trying to make sense of Alzheimer's and the effect on her, one thing said to us sticks in my mind. A young therapist said to us, 'Do you know that panicky feeling when you can't find your car at a parking lot? Well that is how they feel every day when they wake up.'"~Judy Leathers
