Using sound to remember

I have already told you how I use poetry to remember.  Now I'll tell you another little secret of mine.  It's all about sound and how I use it to remember those precious years when I was able to see my surroundings and appreciate faces, colors, and the wonders of nature.     I do it through sound and it's something that I recently started to do.

 

I am now using sound to help me recap those precious years.  I use my electronic keyboard to help me recreate memories.  I use sound to help me retrieve memories from my memory bank and bring them back to life.  I use the sound of notes strung together so to speak to help me.  To remember kids playing in the snow.  Figure skaters gliding gracefully across the ice.  Hockey players flying up the ice on their skates.  Surfers riding the waves.  Glass boats sailing noiselessly on the ocean.  White capped waves rolling gently against beaches with golden sand.  So much more!  You get the picture!

 

I'm Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day.
