Teacher's note: the following is Emma's explaination of how her life is changing due to the music therapy, and portions are from a conversation she had with her "coach" (grandfather).
I am mad at me music. I know that me brain is growing. I know that I am getting better but I am mad because now all, can I say, I know is not real. I always believed that my mind friends were, can I say, real creations. Now I have to see I made everything up so I could survive in me alone world. How can I, can I say, play music that takes my mind away?
(the following is a reply to her "coach" when he asked why she was mad with her music and her awakening into this "new world.")
but, Zayte, I think you are attempting to explain theory of the mind which is a book I have not been priveleged to read. But I think it is about how one part of me mind can be working to compensate for the part thtat is incapable of knowing now. Yes, I know I am "one emma" because you tell me. Of course I am not Sybil, I am emma. Multiple personality is not me thing.
Let me begin, I have been having me brain feeling new connections inside when me able to process a lot more, and me mind is not with fog. I am able to ssee me new friends and Barney on the video tv. Music lets me think of things, not hear bees. When this has occurred, I began to see a different world than the one with bees in my more quiet world. Barney can't talk back to me and hug me. I can hug you but he cannot. so now I know and it is due to me music and that is my story.
I am thinking I probably would not be able to be, can I say, focused enough to be in a real friendship without me music. I am a good friend now. I am a good friend to Emma (myself). I will write a new poem about me new world with music. I love all of you and I am so lucky.
