These eighteen stories are based on Mary Kiki Wilcox's 12 years of volunteer work in the health center of her senior community, where she takes recorded music, on a CD player, to the residents in the Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities. They listen together, as a group, in their weekly "Mostly Music" sessions, or individually, in their rooms. She has a wide selection of music to share, ranging from classical to popular standards and show tunes. Her listeners talk-about whatever comes, whatever moves them. What Mary sees in the faces of her neighbors as they listen to the music, and what they choose to talk about, touch her deeply. These people become her friends. They become her teachers. "Reading A Song Just For Me is a spiritual experience, a reminder of the beauty and value of the life in us all and the joy of being of genuine service to it. Mary Wilcox is a true healer who shows us that we can uncover the wholeness in others and celebrate it by sharing anything we genuinely love." -Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., author of Kitchen Table Wisdom
