Header Challenge 15-02-12 = Lets get out of here by Christopher

My youtube music this week is by the Trews - Locked Doors.

The theme this week is by Christopher - ((Lets get out of here))

My take on this theme is of a sad note - but I hope it helps this illness that so many of us suffer.
ALZHEIMERS.

This illness is like having the doors being shut and locked in the corridors of your mind.
Lets hope that one day - they will find a cure for this dreadful illness - when someone close to you suffers this illness it feels like you lose that person twice - 1st time when they get Alzhemers - and then again when they Pass on.
Hence my Header and poem -- but lets take it a step further shall we - what about all the other doors that have NEVER been opened in the Corridors of the Mind.

Read my Poem and see what I mean.


My post - could this be a part of the corridor of the mind -with the door locked and never been opened where no one has ever been??


If you ever get these doors open - what would we leave behind - or lose???

Please go visit the other Headbangers and see their take on this weeks theme by Christopher
(Lets get out of here).

These good folk are on my side bar - near my shield.

Good Luck.

My husband's Mother died with Alzheimer's. It was a very long goodbye. She had it the disease for 15 years.
I do hope that a cure for Alzheimers is in the near future.
As always, your photos are beautifully taken...and the thoughts that accompany them are provoking ones. Great job, as usual, my friend.

Mac: Great trip and neat way to share your poem talents. Have you put it to music? Nicely done my friend.

A totally unique and appropriate take on the theme.

And then, is this not the big day??? Will we see you around or will you be off all the time?

That is a subject I have given some thought to. It is a genetic possibility for my father and me.

Gail's mum has something similar. She's in a home now, so I can see where you're coming from as she is now enclosed in her own little world.

We all need to stroll back through the corridors of our mind while we can. Some thoughts are best left tucked away unsaid. Others recalled we can right a wrong or just tell someone we care. My Mom had this insidious disease and as it slowly claimed her mind and then her body. Near the end I was holding both of her hands, guiding her from the dinner table to the couch, and I asked "Want to dance?" The twinkle from years before returned to her eyes and she twisted her hips from side to side. I knew that I had made a small connection to the Mom I had known. Your poem is truly touching!

I enjoyed the poem. You have many talents. An interesting walk. I wonder if I could do it or would be spooked....

Your photos are as wonderful as ever, but this post is both thoughtful and moving. Very well done.

Very poignant verse - along with your considerable photographic skills you might share more of your poems!

A most worthy contribution. Lots of people don't know what it is to have an open mind. That makes it even worse when someone hos has had, loses it.

Your talents now go to poetry. I enjoyed reading yours, fascinating images, all very thought provoking.
We have one family member and one very dear friend who have Alzheimer's. It is a very cruel disease.

Well said!
This horrible disease has tackled my family. As you said its like dying twice. The family involved have passed on now but the marks are still there from their descent behind the closed doors.

Great header and poem, Stewart. I'm familiar with Alzheimer's - my wife lost her mother to it years ago, and then a second time when her mother passed away 2 years ago. Tragic disease.
