Using our hands to tell stories. (Or art therapy for beginners).

Expressing feelings for all but the most sophisticated wordsmiths is not easy and, there is a very simple reason for that. The part of our brain that houses our emotions does not have any language capabilities. In other ‘words’ it is near impossible to use ‘words’ to describe music, taste, smell and love. In fact, the only way we talk about these feelings is by using other ‘senses’ from the same palette, so we talk about love in terms of music, or we talk about smell in terms of food.
