Hi All – I’ve just been in with Chris & we played an early Mickey Mouse cartoon which Chris enjoyed. Then we tried to work out what music he liked – I scrolled through the ‘Imagine’ album but that got the thumbs down (!) and it was ‘Hey Bulldog’ (mono of course) that Chris glommed onto. He listened attentively through the entire track and bopped his head along to the beat. Then we went to ‘Across the Universe’ and it was kinda beautiful as Chris stared out over Auckland from his view on the 8th floor with Barbara beside him.
This afternoon I’ll try ‘Odessey & Oracle’ on him – Alec & Chris put me on to this rekkid & I’m in love with it! I’ve also been into an el-cheapo Cole Porter CD whose rolling tunes Chris may like.
Thanks again for all the comments that are coming in! I’m working my way through them with Chris, and John and Liesha read them regularly.
