Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefSkool Daze

Excuse me. Just where did summer go? Now that the bell atop the little red schoolhouse has once again rung, we are all seated at our desks, having sharpened our number two pencils and opened our crisp new composition books. The fall season starts afresh.

For me, starting next week, I take to the (hopefully) friendly skies again to do one of the things I love the most—spending time with family caregivers at events across the nation. First up, Lifescape Senior Expo in Rockford, Illinois, on September 12th. (Psst…an aside to all 70’s TV nerds out there, I won’t be driving a 1974 gold Pontiac Firebird Esprit to the event, but I will be bringing my files. Get it? — Files)

The schedule includes stops in Birmingham for our first annual Fearless Caregiver Conference there (on Halloween, no less) and Fort Lauderdale, the birthplace of these events, where the first one was held in 1998 with Robert Urich. (Boy, the TV references are rolling in now.)...read more

No Wonder

A Tribute to my son, Paul
By Marque Henson

One week’s improvement wiped away by the sweep of a bad day.
One year’s progress erased by the next six months of errors.
Caught in a battle to free one’s self from a bad dream extended over months. Differences glitter along the branches of life like a spider’s
web spun in an Oak tree.

The patterns woven in an unseemly trap destine for failure.
A small boy struggles to break free from the ties that bind.
Never to break free caught in a memory spread throughout eternity.
No wonder he doesn’t matter, for months he didn’t even exist.
New wounds will tear at his heart hardening it against those who
offer false hopes and dreams...read more
