I would like to share with you a story. My son, Andrew, has a severe brain injury and is a quadriplegic. He has lived in a nursing facility for 13 years. Last year a wonderful woman named Terry Rosiak started visiting him. Terry is a Master Mneme Therapist and belongs to an organization named Art Without Boundaries. You can get more information about this organization at their web site http://www.artwithoutboundaries.org.
Terry works with Andrew by doing what I call Art Therapy. The results are very amazing –
This is an oil painting that he was able to do with her direction and assistance. The painting is, I am sure you would agree, very beautiful. The fact that Andrew was able to paint anything at all is astonishing, but the look of enjoyment on his face (the staff took several pictures) is absolutely priceless.
I celebrate this week Terry and Art Without Boundaries Association. Terry has brought joy and creativity to Andrew and many other residents at this facility. She is a very special person.
Wishing you an opportunity to meet special people,
