Visibly “lifeless”, having lived 10 years in a nursing home due to seizures. He had difficulty answering simple questions…until a wonderful young woman cared to find out his one true love…
This is one of many reasons that Music is such a power! Magical things happen because of music.
After a few minutes of listening to his music, listen as the man describes…in detail…why he loves music. He recalls his favorite artists and songs. What a gift we all have, and take for granted.
I had to include this, as I believe wholeheartedly that it is one key to being able to reidentify ourselves with our own person…who we are deep down, before the narcissist or psychopath. There are many times that we are left with intermittent confusion, regarding the hows and why’s of what we endured, as well as what we are left with. That is, for a time.
There are and will be days that we are scrambling…feeling again that we will never be fully functional again. I pray that time would speed up regarding this healing process, so that I may see the end result…days that I am myself again. Days that I don’t second-guess others around me or their intentions. Days that I can just be comfortable in my surroundings, whether at home or in a group. Look at the blessing music is to many of our nursing home residents, Several who are looked at as “unreachable”. Beautiful!!
It’s nice to see this man shine 🙂
