In this room there is also a
magnetic board along with 2" tall
magnetic snippets of Dr. Dog lyrics.
Much like the refrigerator poetry idea, attendees can splice together different
words and phrases from various
Dr. Dog lyrics to create
new and innovative meaning.
At sound check they often practice
just bits and pieces of songs,
snippets of their whole work,
sometimes over and over again.
There are times when this is all we are given in our relationship with someone who has dementia.
If we take the initiative and engage with the information that is in front of us, a new beauty and meaning with relationship can be created. It is up to us to rearrange the snippets to have this interactive experience.
But WE must take the initiative and interact in order to create this opportunity.
