I thought you blog readers would be interested in my take on the bestseller "Water for Elephants." I loved the circus story, but since I wrote this for my caregiving blog on Our Alzheimer's, I concentrated on the nursing home storyline.
Here's how I begin -
From Water for Elephants:
"Either there's been an accident or there's roadwork, because a gaggle of old ladies is glued to the window at the end of the hall like children or jailbirds. They're spidery and frail, their hair as fine as mist. Most of them are a good decade younger than me, and this astounds me. Even as your body betrays you, your mind denies it."
