Communication, understanding and patience, the three keys to success

Today, I went to Ariq’s school to get his school report. I was glad that he really improves well; however, there is a little note from his therapies that we had better give him more drills in two-way communication. I don’t mean to say that he cannot communicate his ideas or thoughts. In fact he does, although it is only those of habitual ones. He is able to say such things like “Kakak mau makan” (I want to eat), “Kakak mau minum susu” (I want to have some milk), “Kakak mau keluar” (I want to go out), “Pergi kemana” (Where are we going?), “Kakak mau mandi” (I want to take a bath) and many others. Ariq also understands simple commands like “Ganti baju” (Change your clothes), “Buka celana” (Pull down your trousers), “Tutup pintu” (Close the door), Ambil bukunya” (Get the book) and so on.

The Fields Of Joy

The Fields of Joy

Let’s wander slowly through the fields,
slowly, slowly through the fields
I touch the leaves that touch the sky
just you and I through fields of joy
All trouble slowly fades away
slowly, slowly fades away
I hold your hand inside my hand
across the land through fields of joy

The sound of music that we hear
The blend of colors through the air
All cities, mountains disappear from view
All truth and beauty near to me and you
With you through the fields
With you through the fields
with you through the fields
the fields of joy

Let’s wander slowly through the fields
slowly, slowly through the fields
I know our love will never die
just you and I
through fields of joy
through fields of joy
