As her memory loss wore on, I decreased Madje’s medications because some of these hasten death and I didn’t like seeing her overmedicated, something that can easily happen in assisted living facilities and with doctors. But she slept a lot anyway, just tired from life, I guess.  So I photographed her sleeping quite a bit. Sometimes I think it was to get used to seeing what she would look like when she was dead but one was nothing like the other at all. I love this photograph.  She’s a so beautiful here, her long skirt swirled out, her face reflecting her Native American heritage, her favorite little stuffed kitty—she always loved cats.  She is so peaceful here and the light comes in through the window like some prelude to going on.
