Harp On This
--by SissyLee, posted Oct 31, 2017
I next found my elder gentleman friend in his room. He is the one who usually wants some harp. He keeps his door shut and windows open. His room is peaceful and fresh. As usual, I played for a half hour that flew by. This man always shuts his eyes and drifts. He is a great listener. We both don't know where the time goes.
I had a surprise pleasure as well. I checked to see if my rather imperious woman was in her room, but she was out. However, she has a new roommate, who is a friend/patient of mine! While not on hospice, she is there to heal from an injury. So I found her in the dining room enjoying hot tea and was able to play a few pieces. Seeing her was a special delight. This person calls me "Turtle" as my practice is "Wise Turtle Acupuncture." She loves music and listens deeply, with great focus. I gave her a dove and she informed me that she wanted to make them, too. Perhaps I can show her how, next time.
When I was done, a woman who does cleaning there thanked me as she pushed her cart down the hall. She has thanked me before. Really warms my heart.
