Building with Wood
THANK YOU to Jerry Brown for submitting the following idea:
I have an electric piano that I take to the rooms of the bed bound patients. Depending
on the age, I play music that I think was popular in their period of growing up.. I play hymns..Sometime I take other wheel
chair patients in with me and we all sing songs together. Remarkable things have happened. People that never talked,
or listened, or responded to other things responded to this.
