Composer Nick Harvey shared the moment his father, Paul Harvey, remembered Where’s the Sunshine?, his composition from the 80s. Nick explains that his dad has dementia, but is “never more present than when he plays the piano.”
Dad has dementia. Sometimes he drifts into another world and I feel like I’m losing him. He is never more present, however, than when he plays the piano.
He came to mine today and I asked him to play one of his compositions. He thought he wouldn’t be able to remember it. pic.twitter.com/EQGcXBwB3w
