Indigo Hours: Healing Haiku (Paperback)
Indigo Hours is a lyrical, profound, and playful book of haiku poems with original scratchboard drawings from an artist thrust into the role of care partner after her husband's diagnosis of "likely Alzheimer's."
Artist and author Nancy Stone took life for granted-until she was thrust into the unchosen role of caregiver for her spouse of fifty years. Her husband's decline has changed every aspect of their relationship-except their love. In poems that show the change of emotions along with insights for coping with loss and grief and the metaphor found in nature-water, light and shadow-Stone breaks down the silence and stigma associated with dementia and Alzheimer's Disease, and offers a calming guide for others dealing with the devastation and exhaustion of caregiving. Her poems and art offer glimmers of gratitude, courage, and resilience for moving forward with love in your heart during challenging times.
