Memorial — Clara Morabito 94 years old

Ms. Clara Morabito thrilled and inspired our audience in 2008 with her poem “I Choose”. At age 87 standing at her walker, with the sadness of her husband Philip in a nursing home, she STILL chose to live her life with Grace, Ease and GUSTO! Here is the poem she recited about 10 times a day while dancing around her apartment on a walker.

I choose to be happy                         I choose to be well                    I choose to be patient

I choose to be grateful                      I choose to be fine                    I choose to be strong

I choose to be caring                        I choose to be healthy             I choose to be calm

And always be thoughtful.             All of the time.                          All the day long.

Clara died on 01 June 2015 surrounded by her loving family. I will forever feel grateful for knowing her and inspired by her LOVE, courage, positive attitude, and her willingness to gracefully deal with the challenges of her life. No matter what she picked herself up, dusted herself off and LIVED FULLY all over again!

Thank you Clara Morabito!

04 June 2015 The Power of MUSIC

This just in from my friend Tom K. “I stopped in to visit my friend who had a stroke. He could speak some words but with great effort. His father was in the room and said, “would you like to hear a duet?” I said sure. To my amazement my friend’s words as he sang were clear. His dad told me the left brain controls speech but the right side is where the music comes from and that side of the brain is not affected. This was very touching and a testament to the beauty and power of music” As an educator, I am encouraging our mutual friend Jay to play the drum, sing make his MUSIC. Music effects all parts of the brain and MAGIC can happen when we PLAY! PLAYING is not just for kids. Playing is an important part of life for us at any time!
