My interview with Maria Shriver on NBC’s Today Show is now available online
The Today Show piece was supposed to air tomorrow, but it came on unexpectedly this morning. Here it is:
Former professor on talking about her dementia: ‘It has made my life richer’
Peter and I happened to have the TV on and watched it. We thought they did a great job in condensing 2 days’ filming to just over 4 minutes. Of course I wish that they had shown as much of Kanye and Aliya as they did of kissy little Dante!

Why don’t you ever mention your final destination?

Thanks so much for being in touch, Susan. I don’t understand what you mean with my “final destination.” Are you asking if I am religious? I’d be happy to talk further when i know what you’d like to know. I wish you and those you love just all of the best.

I watched this morning with smiles and tears in my eyes, yet joy in my heart. Thank you for sharing your story and life with us Gerda Saunders and for leaving a wonderfully written legacy for your family!

Thanks so much for your lovely comment, Antoinette. It means so much to me that you cared enough to be in touch. The fact that I could still write the book is truly a gift from the universe, and I’m glad my family–especially my grandkids who are still so young–will be able to know me in my own words later on. I wish you and those you love just the most wonderful things in your lives.

Dear Liz, thanks so much for being in touch with your kind words. I wrote my book to work out my inner turmoil about who I am and will become with my mind disintegrating,and the thought that you and others are finding it meaningful is an unexpected, amazing gift. I wish you and yours just everything of the best.
