One of the topics of discussion at our music therapist meeting on Saturday was that of having history. One of my colleagues and friends works in hospice with mostly Jewish people, and brought up the fact that sometimes he feels a struggle between having history and knowing history.
This topic led into a conversation about the appropriate use of recorded music in sessions. There are pages of notes I took at this meeting, and of course this is an in-depth topic; I can’t write enough about it now to give it justice. However, I will say that I love that I thought a little differently when I left that meeting.
“To have history is different than to know it.”
I hope to write more on this subject soon.
