Not at all
I don't remember
I know you do, Martin, we have spoken a lot together.
I couldn't help but post this

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
I think we're talking about dementia here. Alzheimer's is but one type. My uncle has vascular dementia and, while I doubt he knows who I am, his doctor is confident he won't die of it. She says he might forget how to swallow...
I forgot how to make a billion dollars... Am I sick?
My memory still works in a surprising way... Maybe the bad point is I remember all, the nice things and the bad things... But I don't like to keep hard feelings. I am not a spiteful person

Here's an encouraging report that says dementia or Alzheimer's patients respond well to music therapy. Maybe our interest in listening to or playing music will forestall deterioration of the brain.
My local university offers a degree in music therapy which is extremely well-attended (probably about 2/5 of the music majors are music therapy majors). I just can't imagine there being enough positions available for all those graduating music therapists. I hope I'm wrong, as it is terrific that musicians can find another way to use their interests and talents.
Is music therapy widely offered or am I aware of it because of this local program? Does anyone actually know a music therapist?

People used to go to concerts to hear new music.
I suppose that by the time I'm old enough to get alzheimers disease I'll be too old, groutchy, and immobile to care.

If there is anyone here whom I have not insulted, I beg his pardon.
I'm fairly absent minded as it is, always have been, but I recognise Alzheimer's as being a genuinely debilitating illness and one I would not like to be saddled with.
