Today, I handed him the sketchbook and I asked him, specifically, to draw me a picture of what is was like to have aphasia. Of what his brain/mind felt like, to him.
This is what he came up with:
|Aphasia Mind (click to enlarge)|
Mind you, he is drawing with his left (non-dominant) hand.
|"The Words" (click to enlarge)|
Of course, he's nowhere near what he used to do, i.e.:
|One of Bob's Drawings, pre-stroke-- Pen & Ink|
But I am so happy he is drawing and using his creativity again!!
