The Alzheimer’s disease

“His vision, after seeing so much through the bars, has become so tired, that it cannot accept anything else.
To him it is like the bars were thousands and thousands and behind the thousands of bars, no world.
Turning in little endless circles, his steps become a ritual dance around a center where a great will is like paralyzed…”

From the movie Awakenings with Robin Williams and Robert De Niro, inspired to the true story of doctor Oliver Sacks, and from The Panther of Rainer Maria Rilke.
