Renowned flutist Eugenia Zukerman has performed in concerts and recitals all over the world.  She was the artistic director of Colorado’s Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival for 13 years, and the arts correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning for over 25 years.  And then in her early 70s, Eugenia was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  Instead of crawling into a corner, she picked up paper and pencil and started writing – in poetry.  She has no idea why she wrote in verse, but the words flowed and resulted in her vivid new memoir, “Like Falling Through a Cloud: A Lyrical Memoir of Coping with Forgetfulness, Confusion and a Dreaded Diagnosis.”  Eugenia tells us how she stays positive despite her “gnarly” disease and about how she and her husband Dick are making every moment in life count, whether on tour with “Like Falling Through a Cloud” or among the bears and deers in their upstate New York house.  Dick tells us about his experience of Eugenia’s diagnosis, and she reads from “Like Falling Through a Cloud.”  Tune in for a tale of love and the incredible power of music.
