Pearline, the Object of My Affliction

Monday May 03, 2021

Pearline and I met in an antique store in the small town of Cashmere, WA. She was a vision of loveliness all in white, and she sang to me in the exotic language of her kind.

 “Honk, honk, groan”  

Bewitching.

 I cradled her in my arms. We were meant to be together.

Roll Call

Thursday April 01, 2021

"It’s April, Parkinson’s Awareness month. It’s also Poetry Month. Put them together, and you’ve got Parkinson’s Awareness Poetry Month. That calls for a PD poem. A poem that is full of false rhymes and staggering meter, the better to give it that old Parkinson’s feeling. Fortunately, I happen to have such a poem right here. (Note: I assume all of you out there suffering from this disease are sufficiently aware of it, so this poem is written to those who are still seemingly healthy.)" Read more for PDS's Roll Call!

Falling Fashion, Dressing for Survival With Parkinson’s

Monday March 01, 2021

"As the flashbulbs pop, and the music blares, the first model shuffles down the runway! The crowd gasps as she shows off her avant garde ensemble: darling slip-on shoes, frisky sweat pants, a vintage t-shirt, set off with sporty knee and elbow pads, and topped with the piece de resistance, a bike helmet, complete with a dazzling LED headlamp."

Did you know that Parkinson’s can impact your hearing?

Monday February 22, 2021

"From talking with family and friends to healthcare providers, it can be challenging to communicate over the phone with others when you are experiencing hearing loss. We recognize the challenge faced by the Parkinson’s community who have lost some or all of their hearing, and those who were born d/Deaf or hard of hearing. That is why at NW Parkinson’s we are opening our doors to prepare to utilize services that allow us to communicate with individuals using telecommunication devices to reach individuals with Parkinson’s and their support networks facing this barrier."

The Beauty of Slow

Monday February 01, 2021

"I went through my old repertoire and picked out the slowest tune I could remember playing, a whaling tune called “Farewell to Tarwathie”. Then I cranked up the volume, and something clicked. The notes rang and sustained beautifully through the amplifier, and took on warmth as the gain control added distortion to the tones. Think Jimi Hendrix goes whaling. (Did I just compare my playing with Hendrix?  Oops. Only in the broadest sense, okay?)" Read Peter Dunlap-Shohl's latest here!
