    This book illustrates how this is happening far from our eyes. I thought writing the book would be painful, and it was, but it made me realize just how extraordinary people can be. There was something that endured beyond language and recollection, a trace perhaps, like grooves that life had worn into him the way a river carves into rock. And he must have felt — I can hardly bear to think of it — he must've felt completely abandoned by us. When he at last came home, he was a ghost of himself, skeletal, immobile, inarticulate and lost. Weller is one of only a few adventurers to make such a dive, far fewer even than those dozens of intrepid Luminous Landscape Workshop explorers who have ventured to the Antarctic surface over the years.

    This is a book about being vulnerable, frail, at the mercy of others. I used to say that we are made of our memories, but what happens when memories are lost? This is his story. Who are we then? Its costs are enormous — not just the staggering financial cost to the individual and their family and to society, but the psychological and emotional ones.

    Rushing across the deck, the two men deployed a rainwater collection system that Alvarenga had been designing and imagining for a week. Also, in addition to the OCs, a number of places and place names in the story are my own invention. The Guardian: " Dementia is our collective responsibility. Then he grabbed the radio and GPS unit and angrily threw the machines into the water. They were both ready to faint with exhaustion, but Alvarenga was also furious.

And, so, we weren't allowed in to see him at all. And for days and days on end he was unvisited. Sea Shepherd uses invasive methods like firing darts of some sort or even ramming fishing vessels.

But surviving in a vibrant world of wild animals, vivid hallucinations and extreme solitude did little to prepare him for the fact that he was about to become an international celebrity and an object of curiosity.

And if I had one word of advice for somebody who's a carer, it's try — if at all possible — to take time for yourself, each day.

Nonetheless, the book is eminently worth reading for its compassion, research, and practical insight. In Sweden, he picked wild mushrooms in the forest, went to a joyful crayfish party where he drank aquavit and wore a garland in his white hair, sat with a palette of watercolours looking out at the meadow although his paintbrush never quite made it to the paper.

And then, an actual lockdown of the ward that he was in, because of an outbreak of norovirus.

The Last Ocean

And one that would never be solved, since the boy never woke up before slipping away from them in the middle of the night. Jenni Dutton, an artist, takes this approach.

The rhythm of raindrops on the roof was unmistakable. It seems to me Gerrard is insinuating that the death of nonhuman animals is a lesser thing than the death of humans—perhaps because animals lack the mental faculties, self awareness, consciousness, and sophisticated culture of humans.

When you live on land and possibly just spend a few weeks on or by the ocean whether on a cruise or a charming resort — or simply fly over it at 30, feet the massiveness can overwhelm us.
