You practice and you get better. It’s very simple.” ~ Philip Glass

Today in therapy, I found a tiny door or window into the brain of my client.  Struggling for months to make a connection between letters and sounds, he parsed several words alone, lips and tongue searching for the places to land, light and trippingly delicate in the production of sounds, and we both almost heard the “click” as the gears engaged and the process began to make sense.  A lot like “Noises Off,” where the doors and windows open and shut, and newness appears and disappears, all of it a huge surprise.

We were laughing at the end of this session, marvelling at the workings of his mysterious brain.
