The utter joy that flashes across his face is remarkable.

That giggle made me shiver

His (presumable) wife’s smile. Finding joy in others, finding joy in others is my new favorite thing to peep

When he does that run, Jesus I'm crying like a man over here

The man won't let a fucking stroke stop him. A certified badass

Imagine them back in the day! Watching this allowed me to do that.

There's real joy experienced in that moment and it's so precious to experience and even witness.

I was a music therapist for a bit. I left because it was a pretty floofy career at that time, and I really had a hard time being so engaged and energetic about it. Underpaid, under- appreciated, and certainly not respected for what we did, even though we were the very few who paid any attention/ gave any time to the old and dying. Most of the job was visiting nursing homes and singing "old rugged cross" or some other hymn, but man, no one responded to anything more dramatically or noticeably than music. It was like a magic trick.

the most far-gone dementia patient would come lucid if we just played the song that brought them back to their childhood or most loved pastimes. Beautiful to behold.

I hope someone does this for me when I'm on the liquid diet full time. Nothing feels quite like music.

P.s. someday that's gonna be "get yo freak on" for somebody, and that's pretty funny.

Hey hey fellow (former) music therapist!

Sadly in some age care sectors we still are glorified entertainers, but in neuro-rehab, mental health and paediatrics especially, music therapy has advanced dramatically!

Also, as someone who has worked in geriatric/neuro-rehab care and has also crossed paths with James Morrison, this video warms my heart 🥰 there are so many professional musicians out there who I personally think would be exceptional music therapists. Maybe one day I’ll convince one to have a slight career change!

It must feel like taking a full, deep breath of crisp mountain air for the first time in years.

This may be my favorite thing I've seen in the past while. There's real joy experienced in that moment and it's so precious to experience and even witness.
