We also tell stories to not be afraid and to be at best loved and at least accepted and not alone.

A great idea maybe similar to narrative therapy.

since we moved my mother (parkinson's) to an assited living place in san diego i, when schedule permits, will bring a guitar to my visits and play.

over and over, especially when i start running through the 30's and 40's standards, and often when i do the tin pan alley chestnuts, some of the most damaged alzheimer's and other dementia patients will perk up and manage a brief time of being present in the moments.

the therapists say this is very common. like the stories, music buries in our bones.
