Sanctuary – a meditation on memory, identity, family and the power of regeneration
At its core it is a reflection on my experience of caring for my mother who suffered with Alzheimer’s disease. I witnessed a lifetime of memories slowly disappear from her world. It is a brutal and relentless disease for the sufferer and distressing to witness for those closest to them. My family and I sought to create a world for our mother which brought her comfort and safety. In short a sanctuary.
During my mother’s journey my first grandchild was born. This was a profound and overwhelming experience. One of intense joy which filled me with hope and expectation for the future. Two of life’s extremes were occurring simultaneously and both were at the centre of my life. I also found myself reflecting on many other familial connections and memories from my childhood. These are the experiences which inform the music of Sanctuary. Gary Daley – 24 February, 2015
