Worth Watching: A Film Following an Alzheimer's Patient Around the Rest Home

There's no skating here though the lady could probably skate along to the tune "Beyond the Sea (La Mer) as she does in the film (not the clip here). Up late last night as I was resurrecting the background functions of the website, this was an interesting view of someone who has lots of function but the connections are somewhat awry. I wonder if this is painful to the people with the disease, or at least is it any more or less painful to them than their life typically was. I have no idea. Just wondering. An interesting view. I'd like to see the outtakes! It was worth watching, I think. Look for it on Independent Lens on PBS (and check http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/youre-looking-at-me/ and http://yourelookingatme.com).

[EDIT: I found the video available in full on PBS.org at least for now, so here's the link directly below.]

The Film, D Tour, on Independent Lens, plus ISU Berlin World Cup Replay Package on Universal Sports Online

I have been out of touch for a few weeks after some long distance skating and the prep and skating and wrap (still ongoing) of our Roadskater.net team charity efforts. Last night was the awards dinner for the Tour to Tanglewood, and it was a transitional day for several reasons, all good. Then I came home wanting to get some computer work done and maybe watch some tele, mostly something meaningless and useless.
