THE MIRACLE OF SOUND AND IMAGINATION.
One of the reasons I make music boxes is that I like to give them myself! A music box is small, but its sound (thanks to the resonance of the wood) can fill a whole space! At the same time it is fragile and subtle (like a bird). It makes you quiet, sometimes emotional. Gives homesickness, but also comfort and cheerfulness!
For example, I give one or more music boxes to the CLINICLOWNS every month. They use this during hun work.
Did you know that there are more than 90 cliniclowns in the Netherlands? Internally trained and working full-time! A Cliniclown visits several children every day and returns every week. He knows the child and his situation and is in contact with parents and nurses. Not a 'normal' clown!
You can recognize it by THE SMALLEST SUIT IN THE WORLD: THE RED NOSE!
“The Cliniclowns are committed to sick and disabled children and people with dementia. By making real contact and using their imagination, the Cliniclowns provide valuable moments of happiness. Children can become so immersed in the game that they push boundaries in their rehabilitation process. A BIT OF IMAGINATION WONDERFUL! ”
