Dear Daniel, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for “finding” you on YouTube. I am just now beginning to process my life’s trauma with a therapist a bit further along in the same process in his life. The book “The Body Keeps the Score” will be a part of my process as will regularly listening to you on YouTube for which I am extremely grateful, thank you. In the past 8 years I have experienced traumatic loss capping what I now realize has been a lifetime of trauma. My recent losses include those of my mother, partner, father, cat, career, and home. Those are on top of devastating bullying for being gay by friends, fellow students, teachers and family, among many others for over 50 years. I suddenly find myself alone with myself. Single and celibate. Sound familiar? Between my work with myself, my therapist, appropriate books and your deeply insightful wisdom I hope to heal. In my deepest core I identify as a pianist, having been strongly drawn to the piano since I was 5 and I will be 65 in April. Thank you for your messages online which will aid me in this difficult journey and process. By the way, I adore Tchaikovsky 5 among many other musical gems written by genius composers who were/are also horrific individuals. The “MeToo” movement has brought this long-standing issue to the forefront. Highly respected music critics have written about the abuse committed by highly respected musicians and how that is affecting their musical library choices. But I digress. In closing, all I can say is thank you, dear Daniel.
