The Adventures of David Hollies

Foreword

D avid Hollies first started experiencing the symptoms of dementia in the fall of 2000 at the age of 41.  At that time, he was an entrepreneur, consultant, professional speaker, columnist, on-air television consumer expert, adventurer, and lecturer on international affairs and economics.  As the disease has progressed, he has let go of all those activities.  However, along the way he has created a series of poems and other writings from the heart.

Besides documenting his personal journey, the writings have given many others a peek behind the curtain of dementia.  Some of his writings have appeared in Alzheimer's journals and newsletters and many have been used as training materials for caregiver support groups and healthcare professionals.

If you have comments or would like to be put on the email list for future writings, you may contact David at davidhollies@earthlink.net.  David is interested in linking up with someone in publishing so that his works (and possibly some of the international correspondence it has generated) might reach a larger audience.
