Introduction:

"Molly Middleton Meyer enters the activities room at Atria Senior Living in Carrollton, Texas with a warm smile on her face, ready to shake hands and offer hugs. She finds nine residents gathered around a table.

They may not know it, but they’re about to have a magical experience. They’re about to use their memories and imagination to create stunning poems."

Dementia runs in my Mom's side of the family. I'll probably wind up being able to hide my own Easter Eggs.
