When Alzheimer’s takes Stacey’s mother, Stacey gives up everything—her career, her music—to take care of her. Until one lonely night, when caretaking becomes too much, Stacy sits at the piano and plays Bach.

She hopes to escape into the comfort of classical music. But what she discovers in the music—about her mother, her family, herself—proves far more enlightening than she ever imagined.

    Beautiful. Alzheimer’s is such a fiendish disease. A life sentence for the crime of living too long, but you’re not the only one trapped. We lost my dad to it. Bits and pieces at first but eventually huge chunks calving off like a glacier self-destructing. (PS coroner became corner)

  2. Ms Rusch, your short fiction is always good, but sometimes, like this, you put it up into the stars. Thank you.
