WATCH HENRY COME ALIVE!
Hello my friends! I’m almost back. I missed you so. I’m recovering from the start of school and will be back on Sunday after a nice reprieve near my favorite nature, water. Idaho has the best rivers and offers respite for the weary soul. Just wanted to say a quick hello and tell you about an awesome movie that might not be out long in case you’re thinking of going to the movies this weekend.
An independent film, Alive Inside, was playing at a small theater in Boise this week. It was part of a great kickoff in our community to raise Alzheimer awareness and how music can bring back and awaken a soul. Being in Poetry Therapy and also very interested in finding ways to communicate with my dad who is suffering from Alzheimer’s and trying to gather stories from his vaulted heart, I was intrigued and had to see it.
This documentary is very well done with case scenarios that show how music has assisted Alzheimer’s patients around the world and how they are working to get music in EVERY nursing home. I hope you can see it. If nothing else, watch Henry; he will light up your heart.
My daddy was excited about using music and has been helping make a list. It’s been fun going over music with him and he’s been calling me. He lives off by himself, so I worry that he won’t get the music or use it because there’s no one to give it to him. But even if he does it for a small while and gets benefit and joy from it, I will be happy.
I’ll write more Sunday and come a visiting you! Have a blessed weekend my friends. Marie
